PyGuile - invoke Python scripts from inside Guile

One of the problems, which less popular scripting languages encounter, is the lack of libraries for performing various operations. Frequently, those libraries are available - but for another scripting language.

As a first step to alleviate this problem, PyGuile allows scripts written in Scheme and executed by Guile to invoke Python libraries. This makes the rich library ecosystem of Python available also to Guile users.

The thought, which went into PyGuile's design, was documented in PyGuile design documents in my blog.

The package is available for download from: pyguile-0.3.0.tgz

The project is currently looking for users i.e. problems, to which it is the best solution. Feedback from users will help direct PyGuile's future evolution.

DISCLAIMER: While it has undergone some testing, version 0.3.0 is still at beta level. Use it at your own risk!
