This certainly has been my only experience with fortran.  It's been quite
sometime late 80s I would surmise was the last time I touched fortran.

I think that ability is already there in some newer versions of
fortran.  But don't callme on that.  If anything one possibly could
simulate fortran using Guile.

Yes, with g77 you can probably embed C into the source using some compiler
directives.  But I think I would rather let the researchers work out how
they want to integrate such a beast! :-)
