Since this is a change from 1.8 behavior, would it be feasible to place
a cross-reference to (ice-9 curried-definitions) into the manual entry
for define ?  At the current point of time, discoverability of this
change is really bad.  I can't find _any_ reference to it in the Guile
manual (a plain text search for either "curried" or "curry" turns up
nothing), so it seems like this is just a change sprung without notice
or discoverable remedy on Guile users.

I'd have expected a pointer at least somewhere (if not everywhere) among
those links:
