I not all that concerned with things that require an explicit
activation.  I'm more concerned with any additions to what's visible
in the core of guile (guile) and (guile-user) at startup, and more
particularly, how much happens in ice-9/boot-9.scm, though to some
extent that's an efficiency issue as much as a semantic issue.

I do think it would be nice if eventually guile were separable to the
extent that it was easy to install a "guile-base" that was perhaps
much smaller than "guile-base + guile-foo + guile-bar", but I'm not
saying I know how things should be broken up in to guile-base,
guile-foo, and guile-bar...
