I'd be glad to do this.  I've long wanted these to accept keyword
arguments for encoding and binary mode.  We could also have a keyword to
ask Guile to guess the encoding.  This could be used to simplify the
code used in 'compile-file' etc.

We could also add a fluid to specify whether 'open-file' should try to
guess the encoding, if that helps.

What do you think?
