I spent a lot of effort on translation at least in part because it 
seemed like the Guile project really wanted that to happen -- it 
seemed like a good, useful project that fit my interests and there 
was lots of stuff about it on the Guile web page and elsewhere. But 
when it came to the time when I needed help, nobody seemed 
interested or committed to the idea.  It was frustrating, because I 
really didn't have the ability to bring my stuff the last step to 
maturity even though I had brought it right up to the brink.
