The main problems I see with that:

Perhaps also the lack of possibility to enhance Emacs with code written in other languages? I think for example that _javascript_ will be something most future programmers will know. Could Guile make it easier to enhance Emacs with _javascript_ (as an alternative to Elisp)?
