OK in principle, but how long will "eventually" be?

I suggest that this work be code-managed such that we can still
release a 1.8 series with syncase working and _before_ redoing syntax

More positively, perhaps this memoization/evaluation separation,
redoing syntax transformation, support for compilation and storage of
memoized code etc. is such a big improvement that we could call its
first release Guile 2.0.

That would be great. But I really want to see a 1.8.x series first.
