I'm not aware that this "hack" collection has been doing anything for
us recently.  At least, it's true that guile-core does not currently
depend on workbook, as it did once.

I'm sure there is stuff in workbook and guile-scripts that is still
useful, but I prefer to import it lazily (and as and when it becomes a
priority).  That will also allow us to consider where each imported
item should go within the Git repository.

Wouldn't it make sense for guile-www to be a separate Savannah

In case this sounds like I'm singling out guile-www, I've actually
always had a problem understanding the structure and existence of the
Guile CVS modules other than guile-core - and I think the fact that
many of them are obsolete and/or bitrotted is a clue that this is a
problem in practice.
