Hi, and sorry for coming late to the discussion.  I think this whole
patch is great.  I've a few detailed comments below, and I'll comment
on some of the conceptual issues in response to emails further down
the thread.

Hmmm :-)  (I'm British.)  I guess Guile is an FSF project, and the FSF
is US, though, so OK.

OK, but how about (i) adding a "gettext" feature too, (ii) adding a
NEWS item to say that the "i18n" feature is deprecated and will be
removed in a future release, and that people should check "gettext"

You should use (load-extension ...) here instead.  Then if someone
wants to link the i18n lib statically, they can.

(Note that I haven't looked in detail at the C code yet; I might do
that if I get time in the next few days.)
