I was not happy with this either.

It's great that you're working on this stuff! But it should have been
pushed to a branch. The thing is, it really *does* need to be perfect.
Maybe not at first push, but within a couple weeks of being merged to
mainline. My fear was that since Guile hackers have so little time, in
general, that you would push something broken in corner cases, then walk
off -- not a concern specific to any one person.

It's good that you are sticking around to iron out the bugs.
