As you probably know, I'm currently looking into bootstrapping GuixSD
from source.

I'd like to see Guile become more bootstrappable, i.e., less C code and
perhaps a BOOTSTRAP define to remove all non-essential features and
possibly target bootstrapping it before bootstrapping gcc or even tcc.

I see C99 more as a feature than a problem.  Nyacc supports C99, hardly
any recent software can be built without it.
