Perhaps rather implement this as a separate, “advanced” interface.
Think: ipython vs. python.  Most of the existing repl module would be
reusable for such a task.

There are benefits to keeping the official package, shell, repl,
interface, whatsit free of unnecessary features.  Such simplicity aids
in debugging, and facilitates a clear definition of language
semantics, compatibility, portability, extension, etc..

Also, are you aware of the multiple existing packages that provide
provide a Guile REPL with syntax highlighting (and *much* more)?.  Try
Geiser [1] or Quack [2], both of which run inside emacs and provide
integration between file and repl buffers (i.e. run expressions
directly from file buffers).
