One point to consider on this topic is that guile is targeted (via the compiler 
tower) to support other languages.   Strings in ecmascript, for example, are 
16-bit code points, not 8 or 32.  I personally don’t care that the guile-2.2 
hosted ecmascript can’t be a pedantic implementation, but it may generate 
issues so some down the road.  (BTW, the other area in which guile does not 
implement ecmascript is in representation of numbers
