More like telling me off.  Of course, I am perfectly able to implement
my own moderately efficient version in Guile using already existing data
structures, and this is exactly what I will be doing in this case.

It is not me that needs help here but rather Guile, since the disjoint
members of the set of abstract data structures chosen by Scheme don't
include some combinations of features that map reasonably well both to
an abstract problem space as well as to the underlying implementation.
There is some sense in making use of this feature overlap in reducing
the number and increasing the versatility of the underlying primitives,
whether at the Scheme or the VM level.

Whatever.  I think we can all agree that I don't know what I am talking
about and move on.  Saves a lot of hassle for everybody.
