No thanks, I think slib install instructions should be in slib.

That's subtly different, normal "guile -lguile.init" goes into the
guile-user module.  But something like

        (define-module (ice-9 slib))
        (define-module (guile-user))
        (load "slib/guile.init")

might be close, assuming the guile.init can be found.  I forget what
it was that didn't work when I tried this though (maybe only with the
cvs head, not sure).

I think it's sort of supposed to work.
