Mes -- Maxwell's Equations of Software

An attempt at dissolving [GuixSD's] bootstrap binaries

Mes aims to create an entirely source-based bootstrapping path. The target is to [have GuixSD] bootstrap from a minimal, easily inspectable binary --that should be readable as source-- into something close to R6RS Scheme.

We will show the current state of Mes, some interesting things found on the path so far, and Q&A on `Why Scheme?' and its future.
