Do you mean that, for programs written to be interpreted, which lack proper
‘eval-when’ clauses, the idea was to fall back to interpretation when
auto-compilation fails? That would indeed be friendlier to programs written
for previous versions of Guile.
However, in the example I gave, somehow, an error should occur. With 1.8 you
would get an error when reading ‘foo.scm’, whereas here it’s just
silently ignored, which sounds wrong.
