...And another thing! This morning wingo pushed a couple of patches for the 1.9.x series that I'd been trying to get in for a while and which add two features that bring the capabilities of Guile's module system up to point where a "userland" (i.e., external to Guile's core) implementation of R6RS library support can be written. They are:

  • Support for the version information as part of Guile's "module" form, along with modifications to Guile's library search mechanism to support searching for modules matching an R6RS-compatible version reference
  • The ability to export a binding from a module under a different name
With these features in place, library support is much closer to being ready in time for 2.0.
