That’s cool! Several years ago I worked on the Pythong bindings for
translators (though I did not get as far as I’d have liked) and it’s
great to see paths converge again!

The common lisp bindings had some pretty nifty tools, so you might find
inspiration there. You can make a lot of difference with relatively
little effort.

One aspect in which where developing Guile is much more enjoyable than
programming in Python is that once you get used to using the info
documentation (i.e. via Emacs) you can work without googling, and a
full-text search in structured, relevant information beats a Google
search — even if Google leads you to Stackoverflow.

(for all those unfamiliar with the Hurd: Here’s a writeup about the
technical advantages of the Hurd:
