If that can be implemented without breaking backward compatibility, then
it’d be fine, I think.
Though I think out-of-band means should always work. For instance, when
compiling SRFI-105 code, one could write “guild compile --srfi-105
(compile #:from (lookup-language 'scheme-sweet-expressions) ...).
