   Nope.  In Guile, there is no such thing as a globally shared
   mutable name space: each module has its own set of bindings.

In Guile, that is _one_ implementation of a million.  I could list a
slew of Lisps that have a global namespace, all quite different.
You'd only be able to mention the RxRS variants. ;)

(oh, and I consider Scheme broken in many regards, but that is for
another thread)
