bug#32580: Setting variables %load-should-autocompile and GUILE_AUTO_COM

Subject: bug#32580: Setting variables %load-should-autocompile and GUILE_AUTO_COMPILE in ~/.guile doesn't prevent compiling

Hello MC,

I assumed ~/.guile would be evaluated before any script.  Perhaps I am mistaken.

Yes, that does work.  Now every time I want to disable autocompile I must:

GUILE_AUTO_COMPILE=0 guile ~/scheme/hello.scm

If there is a hello.go under $XDG_CACHE_HOME/guile then it will be used
anyway unless it is considered out of date.  I would very much prefer to:

eliminate the unnecessary chatter when no warnings or errors occur
OR disable the auto-compile feature in ~/.guile.  

If these aren't possible, then I suppose I can make a shell alias or function

%load-should-autocompile was mentioned in IRC by the person who asked
me to report this as a bug.  It's also present in some commit messages I 
found by a general web search.
