Re: [PATCH] Compile in a fresh module by default

Hi Ludovic,

Naive question (and I realize I'm a bit late here): What if there are
bindings in the current module that need to be present for expansion
and compilation to succeed?  I ask because I'm working on a macro that
transforms R6RS library expressions, which contain nested `define'
calls, into Guile modules.  My code rewrites these defines as location
declarations that get exported as part of a module interface (at
least, in theory -- right now it just erases them).

When I bind my `library' macro in the REPL after building from the
current HEAD of master and then load and compile a source file
containing an R6RS library form, I get a syncase error during
compilation about defines in expression context; when I revert the
effects of this patch, the error goes away.
