Re: SRFI-105 (curly-infix-expressions) marker #!srfi-105 ... could guile live with that?

There are advantages either direction. I agree with you on the advantage of
#!curly-infix, which was an alternative recommendation. However, John Cowan
strongly argues that the advantage of #!srfi-105 is that it tells you "where to
go for more information", as well as being more general.

True. We use .sscm for "sweet-scheme", for example.
