Sorry for taking so long to come back to you. I think this is great
work! I pushed it as ‘wip-posix-spawn’ so others can give it a try.

More deletions than insertions. 👍
That scary-looking Gnulib update seems to have worked well.
I have mostly cosmetic/polishing comments and one issue with ‘system*’.
I can actually do that on your behalf if you’re unavailable these days;
let me know what you prefer.

For top-level functions, please add a comment above explaining what it
I would call this one ‘primitive-spawn’ rather than ‘spawn*’ and keep it
private to (ice-9 popen).
> +(define* (spawn exec-file argv #:key
> + (in (current-input-port))
> + (out (current-output-port))
> + (err (current-error-port)))
Please add a docstring. It may also be worth documenting it in the
manual given that it’s public.
> + (let* ((in (port-with-defaults in "r"))
> + (out (port-with-defaults out "w"))
> + (err (port-with-defaults err "w"))
I’d make it “r0” and “w0” since we’re doing to throw the ports away
We could even avoid allocating a port when we’re going to use /dev/null
(and thus go with ‘open-fdes’ directly), but that’s a micro-optimization
we can keep for later.

I’d keep this one, I guess it doesn’t hurt?

It’s good that we have better error reporting thanks to ‘posix_spawn’.
However, I don’t think we can change that in 3.0. What about, for 3.0,
adding a layer around ‘spawn’ so that ‘system*’ still returns 127 when
‘spawn’ throws to ‘system-error’?

Likewise we should keep this one.

We’ll have to leave this change for the next major series of Guile.
