Policy issues, I think.  How should the modules be named, should they
be installed by default etc.

My SRFI-13 implementation currently gets installed under
<prefix>/share/guile/srfi and can thus be loaded with a 

  (use-modules (srfi srfi-13))

form.  If the size of bothers people, it could be added to
the core distribution like the library.

My main concern is not to get this into, but into the
distribution, so that it is easy for people to use it, and that people
can write code relying on it.
