the changelog entry neglects to mention some incorrect replacements of
"iff" w/ "if".  the former is a notational shorthand for "if and only
if" (see node "Manual Conventions").  could you correct these and post
another patch?

Have done. /me foolishly overlooked (guile)Manual Conventions, and drew mental connection to "many typos of if."? :-S

If people don't have to build, they can just snap their fingers and
duplicate them, that's wonderful. But this change in technology
doesn't suit the people who wants to be able to own individual copies
and can get money for individual copies. That's an idea that only fits
conserved objects. So they do their best to render programs like
material objects. Have you wondered why, when you go to the software
store and buy a copy of a program it comes in something that looks
like a book?  They want people to think as if they were getting a
material object, not to realize what they have really got in the form
of digital copyable data.
