Nice that it can detect such things and adapt!

Right, this works.

However, the `s/make-shared-substring/substring/' occurs only at
module-installation time, which precludes one from running the examples
from within the source directory.  Also, while `id.cgi' DTRT (except for
`make-shared-substring') so that it can be run from within the source
directory, `you-are-here' just makes plain `use-modules' that are bound
to fail when invoked from within the source directory.

Maybe all the modules could be moved to a `www' subdir, and then
examples could be generated from `.in' files at configure-time that
start with something like:

  ${GUILE-guile} -L @top_srcdir@ ...

This way, `(use-modules (www ...))' would work fine.

What do you think?
