I strongly suspect that those users would have made themselves known
by now. Neal mentioned that he uses guile in some projects, and that's
pretty much it so far.
Well, I'm using guile scripting support in gdb as it seems to be
noticeably faster than python for my scenarios with parsing huge heap
areas. But I do that on CentOS 7/8s with my own backports of the gdb
package and won't be losing a lot if Fedora spec hides guile under %bcond.
Maybe there are others who are abstaining from this discussion simply
because they don't expect to be affected by the change.
(I'd have a stronger opinion on that if we had better ECMAScript support
in guile though)
