My understanding is that TJIT/Nash essentially needs a special VM engine
with additional hooks for its tracing:

If we make this engine available in Guile proper, then I think Nash
could flourish outside of Guile and yet be usable by anyone running
vanilla Guile.

I haven’t checked if the actual implementation details completely match
this idealized view, but I hope they do.  :-)
