Github's fine, I just noticed it was a few days behind the nongnu git,
but as my patch mostly just adds new files, that shouldn't be a problem.

I'm mostly basing this on the fun I had poking around with the swank
server. There's a lot more that could be done, but some things are hard.

For example, I have no idea how to do the following:
- find out the source form of macros (define-syntax foo <this-part>)
- find the source file for non-compiled code (even for compiled code,
  I'm just assuming the source file is in the same place as the
  debugging information)
- support the debugger (when entering the debugger, geiser would have to
  not send *any* commands until the debugger is exited, the reader for
  the debugger mostly accepts single keypresses)

So this is a first step, but not really full support :-/ But as this is
my main Scheme, I'm willing to work on it until we get as far as we can

Thanks for your help, greetings!
