Based on Mark's prompting, I have already done this for a number of
existing guildhall packages. In many cases it was pretty simple, in two
particular cases, less so.

Hopefully, one of the advantages of using the guildhall would be to
shorten that path. Since libraries would usually be installed in guile's
site directory, or guildhalls one.

I'd prefer it was added, but I can live with it not being included. At
Mark's request, I have changed existing uses of it in guildhall
packages, so that 2.0.5 users don't need to do anything.

R7RS will probably want its own incompatible convention anyway...
