Incidentally the same happens in Guile: the better the runtime gets, the
more functionality moves from C to Scheme. It seems that when you create
a tool with a Lisp runtime, moving as many things into the runtime as
viable might be a natural tendency.

And just like Emacs, Guile derives serious added value from that,
because the migrated code interacts much better with existing Lisp code.

Best wishes,
Arne
