That sounds great to me!

Luckily, I haven't actually started the rewrite, because I also have
limited time to work on this. So I'm very glad to hear that you're
interested in transfering them. If you are the only author of the
pieces, then I think the transfer is simple - you put the FSF
copyright notice at the top, and you're done. (Assuming the code works
correctly on Guile 2.0. But the best way to check that is by running
tests.) But Andy and Ludo are the real authorities on this.
