I'd be inclined to make one radical change, and not worry about the
old stuff.  Someone can still grab slib.scm from 1.6.4 or whatever if
they really need it, ie. don't want to update immediately.

I'd also be inclined to do that now too, I don't think there's any
special merit in an old slib.  Anyone wanting one can always
(presumably) run it up with "guile -lguile.init" the way slib

Without sounding like a broken record :) ... I wouldn't worry these
either.  If slib has a problem then leave the fixes for there :-).
