  [1] Though actually, the current SLIB release still has the unix/UNIX
    symbol case issue (which has been fixed in CVS).  I believe it also
    doesn't define the (ice-9 slib) module if it detects guile 1.6, so
    we'd still need at least a small wrapper.

Good points; I had forgotten about the case problem because slib is
patched in NetBSD pkgsrc so i have a fixed version.

I understand your concern, but as I see it things are quite broken
now.  One could reasonably take the approach of

  ask Aubrey to make a new point release with symbol case fixed

  make ice-9/slib just a define-module/load wrapper, with an option
  for users to revert

  declare any problems with guile.init bugs in slib and fix them there

That will have a little short-term pain but get us quickly to a
non-broken state.
