Hi, Noah;

I'd felt afraid of address@hidden because I'm just a newbie and a
poor enghlish reader/writer; especially of language problem.

My goal? Hum... Like other people, I'd googled when I'd needed a test
suite. I'd heard the SRFI 64 and SRFI 78 but not been able to use it
then. So, I'd tried with unit-test in guile-lib.

unit-test is good but my concern was abnormal case, i.e., error or
exception. unit-test supports assert-exception macro but I feel
insufficient when unexpected exception occur. So, I was back to SRFI 64
and made it work on Guile.

I think there are people googling for test suite like me. If Guile
include SRFI 64 in bundle, it would be helpful to them.

Talking about the original SRFI 64 implementation of Per's, i.e.,
reference or upstream, there was a bug and laked functionalities unless
on Kawa or MzScheme. I'm a newbie of scheme and begined at Guile but
might expand to Chicken and/or Gambit.

Portability of test suite might be important, I think. Test code using
my implementation will work on Chicken and Gambit too. Of course, it
will work on Kawa or MzScheme with the reference implementation.

I think a porting for Guile 2.0 is finished. There is one functionality
issue, a source code line numbering support, for Guile 1.8, Chicken and
