Follow-up Comment #1, bug #30169 (project guile):

(Follow-up from bug-guile.)

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.
