  Have you ever tracked Emacs versions over an extended period of time and
  seen how much Emacs Lisp changes in a five-year period?  Have you ever
  tracked anything that attempted to have two interfaces over an extended
  period of time?

  The definite harm is that Emacs Lisp and Guile /will/ diverge and that one
  is more maintained than the other, but even so, the community effort that
  goes into Emacs will need to be increased just to maintain status quo.

  And where are all the /new/ users and developers for Emacs coming from?
