Re: the continuing discussion of the GNU extension language's name.

Why "GUILE"? (GNU's Universal Interpreted Language Extension)
Two additional reasons:

1. It does not give deliberate offense to Dr. Ousterhout or his
supporters, thereby allowing the warring factions to eventually
make peace (along with some others, perhaps - Gloria's 'Usband Is
Linguistically Educated) and get back to work.
2. By pronunciation it offers appreciation to one of the co-inventors
of Scheme. (Maybe a library package could be named "Scheme User
Supported System Macros And Native-code"? OK, that's a stretch ...)
