Do you mean GDS (gds.el)? If so, could you try out the instructions in emacs/gds-tutorial.txt.

Not really,

Fair enough, but I'll try to sell GDS a little anyway :-)

gds is the debugger if I am not mistaken.

Kind of. Debugging is probably the hardest aspect of GDS, but GDS aims to provide the complete using-Guile-in-Emacs experience, including plain old evaluation, help and completion too. You don't have to set any breakpoints if you don't want to.

The way that GDS differs from run-guile.el, cmuscheme.el and the like, is that you use it when working on a Scheme file - like C-x C-e for Elisp - rather than by writing expressions in sequence in a special shell-like window.

I was talking about a interactive guile mode in emacs. I took Thien-Thi Nguyen's run-guile.el and modified it a little bit, and it let me to run guile as a inferior interpreter.

The new guile.el doesn't seem to do that.

No, it is quite different, and unfortunately I'm not aware of any docs to explain what it does provide.
