Hmmm.  You could also use a module centered approach:  Guile has a pure
r5rs module, where there are actually no guile extensions available (or
at least that's the way it _should_ be :-).  Whether a certain function
behaves as in R5RS or not depends on the set of modules.  Since modules
should also reflect functionally related groups, this seems to be a
sensible approach (at least in the long term, when guile is more cleanly 
separated into modules).  It seems also to be more helpful with functions
that are neither 'guile extensions' nor R5RS, like the SRFI extensions.
