Yup.  In fact, I fully expect it to make Larry Wall physically ill.

Why would I want to do that?  I'm a Perl programmer that wants to dabble
in Guile not a masochist!  There's a popular saying in the Perl community
- "only perl can parse Perl."

Nope, but there will be soon.  It'll be a dual pre-release of,
which is the core binding, and Inline::Guile, which is the syntactic sugar
that will let Perl programmers add Guile procedures to their code almost
seamlessly.  You should be able to get it off CPAN sometime in the next
couple weeks.

ctax?  I have no idea what that is!

Ah! I see.  I said "Perl binding for Guile".  I should have said "Guile
binding for Perl".  Now I get it.  Sorry for causing your confusion.
