Thanks for the encouragement, and also for forgiving my frequently poor
social skills :)  Free time has been scarce in the last 8 months (thanks
to my 8-month-old nephew) but I would indeed like to finally get to work
on improving Guile's string handling.

Before embarking on paths as sequences of path components, I would first
like to figure out how best to handle posix byte strings.

I've had second thoughts about my last proposal.  I will outline my
recent thoughts on this subject in another email, hopefully in the next
few days.
