Please see the FAQ. Replacing guile would be a MAJOR piece of work,
and IMHO would have little positive effect. It's not guile, per se,
that has the problem. It is, however, more likely a "problem" in how
gnucash uses guile. Gnucash 2.0 is much better about it, but I still
think we need to "fix" our modularization methods.

You understand incorrectly. Guile is maintained, and even actively developed.
However, g-wrap is currently not well-maintained...
