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anyway unless it is considered out of date.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.
