This looks like a very nice idea, but I wonder why you don't put it
through the SRFI process.

To my mind, doing this as a SRFI would bring two significant benefits.

1. Quality and breadth of review.  I'm sure there are many nits in the
   attempt to define a common module API, and a SRFI review would help
   to identify and discuss those.

2. Traction/authority.  Something like this will only succeed if it
   succeeds, if you know what I mean.  Getting it approved as a SRFI
   would give it a lot more authority and persuade a lot of people
   (including myself) that it really was the way to write modules in
