M-x geiser-add-to-load-path

That will ask for a directory and send a command to Guile adding it to
%load-path.  If i understand correctly, all that's needed is to also add
the directory to %load-compiled-path, and use the command automatically
at Guile startup with the contents of geiser-load-path.

Does that make sense?

taught not to. So it is with great programmers.
