I did try Cello. Cello turned out absolutely useless for me as
interfacing it with other C standard types is a PITA / completely
broken. After fiddling around for a while I got sick from what Cello
does with code I would write and gave up. Seriously, any attempt to
emulating duck typing in C is a joke and should be wiped off the face
of this planet. With fire. Creating an actual interface layer on top
of C as those intermediate languages do might look like an option, but
then you're left there with your own implementation of guile - or
worse, javascript. From where there's nothing left to do wrong any
I then started trusting my C skills again and wrote whatever I was
attempting to do in plain C - and it worked.
