   BTW: have you read workbook/bugs/versioning-of-extensions?  It's not
   nearly complete, but it's what I've had time to write down as yet.

it looks like a plan to just implement something and throw it against
the wall to see if it sticks.  in particular, having the interface
number encoded in the name doesn't sound like fun for anyone.

the proposal is not detailed enough to be taken seriously.  when you say
"One fairly simple possibility that *might* work ..." there is a lot of
room for mis-design, mis-implementation and mis-understanding.  perhaps
what is there can be filled out w/ some use-cases that show how the
design holds up to both normal use and weird boundary conditions (don't
forget to handle ignorant non-compliance).

i've just claimed "write modules/arch-survey.text" from TODO and should
be checking in something in the next day or so.  probably you can get
some ideas from there.

another example to look at: i just noticed in guile-rgx-ctax there are
PLUGIN subdirectories, w/ simple interface-definition directives.
