Re: [PATCH] Add ".guile.sls" and ".sls" to the default %load-extensions

If it's semi-standard, we should probably support it too.

However, a Google search reveals the following other uses of .sls:
  - A list of images for a slideshow ("sls" stands for "slideshow script")
  - The backup files for some program callled Litespeed
  - ScriptLab Scripts (seems to be an image generation program)
  - Configuration files for the Salt infrastructure management tool

So we probably shouldn't use it ourselves. (Plus, I personally think it's uglier than .scm, but that's not a strong argument.)

Hello all,

Any objections to adding ".guile.sls" and ".sls" to Guile's default
%load-extensions?  Ian Price tells me that this naming convention is
commonly followed for R6RS libraries and implementations, e.g. Racket,
Mosh, Ikarus, and Ypsilon.  It would facilitate easy use of R6RS
libraries without having to rename the files.  I'm inclined to go along.

What do you think?
