It is.

This is my feeling, too.

In fact, a major goal of the recent rewrite of G-Wrap was to cleanly
separate Guile-specific and generic code. I intend to make G-Wrap
support Pika Scheme (Tom Lord's upcoming Scheme project), once Pika is
major enough. So even if Guile releases were far more frequent, it
wouldn't make too much sense, either.
