If you're just talking about deprecating the old name, but not
removing it entirely, or if this change isn't likely to affect
programs compiled against libguile, etc.  Then I'm probably OK with
the change.  Otherwise I feel like we should probably leave it alone
for the release.

(1.5.5 will be released this weekend, maybe even today.)
