Note lest anyone be confused, I wasn't suggesting that hobbit go in to
guile-core, just asking if my fixes should go into guile-comp (the
guile hobbit CVS module) that's already there.

In theory, yes. Right now all I have working is the command-line
script, ghobbit which uses ghobbit.scm to create a .h and .c file from
a given .scm file.
The compile.scm script is the one that should let you say:
(compile "tempfile" '(module name) some-func some-other-func)
and have it generate a .so and immediately link it back in. That's
presuming I understand it right. However, I'm still trying to figure
out why the dynamic-link (and libtool operations) are not quite

Well, I'm going to spend a little more time on this, and if I can get
it working, we'll probably start testing it in gnucash immediately.
