Hi Mark,

Thanks for the revisions.

Right, at the end of applying all of your patches, I'm sure that's the
case; however the first patch adds an @include without adding the
appropriate file, so applying just the first patch without the following
two would yield a project that doesn't compile.  I just meant that you
need to squish the first two or three of them together.  I can do that
when I apply them, though.

By @itemx I just meant to do instead of:

> address@hidden -s @var{script} @var{arg...}

you would

@item @var{script} @var{arg...}
@itemx -s @var{script} @var{arg}

The other option would be

@item [-s] @var{script} @var{arg}

which is not as clear IMO.  I feel that it's important to have a good
example up there, and making it clear that it's OK to just invoke Guile
as "guile foo.scm" is important.  But your description is good too.

Again, probably worth eliding the deprecated 1.4 stuff...

Need --fresh-auto-compile here too

> address@hidden GUILE_AUTO_COMPILE

Need to note GUILE_AUTO_COMPILE=fresh, and @ref to Compilation
