Hi Neil,

I also think that wip-manual-2 is looking great! Your commit granularity
is also really nice.

That way when someone writes new docs, they have a better idea about how
that fits in. For example I need to write something about "nil", and
I'll look at your branch and see where you're going, but if it were
merged already I could just look at the state of master and see where
the right place would be.

I still think it's the right statement to make :) Guile _is_ and _has_
other things as well, but fundamentally it's a Scheme. IMO at least :)

Happy hacking!
