    Then perhaps the goals of the Guile-Emacs project should be shifted,
    such that the first goal is to have Emacs that can use Scheme
    extensions, and push the goal of having Emacs Lisp based on Scheme
    farther into the future.

The extensions written in Scheme need to interoperate with all the
extensions written in Emacs Lisp.  Whether the roadmap for getting
there ought to be changed, I am not sure.
