   So your fix seems reasonable, _provided_ `guile-www' doesn't rely on
   string mutations and interactions between substrings and their parent

the easy way is to use configure script option --disable-shsub.  i have
updated the README to mention this for the next release (2.19), like so:

        You can use the configure script option `--disable-shsub' to
        explicitly build a version where `make-shared-substring' is
        replaced w/ simply `substring'.  By default, configure arranges
        for the replacement only if it can't detect that your Guile has

if the configure script is NOT detecting missing `make-shared-substring',
then that's a bug -- please post the output of the ./configure run (w/o
the `--disable-shsub' option).

   Maybe you could provide him with a patch allowing `guile-www'
   to be used with both Guile versions?

this should likewise be handled automatically by configure (if not,
that's a bug).  in the configure run output, there should be something
like "acts like (ice-9 optargs-kw) ...yes", and the installation script
module-install will read `need_optargs_kludge="no"'.

improvements to the detection routines welcome, in any case!
