Could help, indeed.

If you want to take that route, you need to make sure the reader change
is effective when the file is read, rather than at run time:

  (eval-when (expand load eval)
    (read-set! keywords 'prefix))

I would suggest fixing Emacs though, or ignoring the limitation for now.


Other than this minor issue, I find it very nice!

I’ve added you to the Savannah group so you can push changes to the web
site.  Please restrict yourself to guile-web.git and post changes here
beforehand (and feel free to ping those lazy maintainers when it takes
too long!).

When you push a change to the web site’s source, can you please update
the CVS web repo at the same time?  See
<> for instructions.  If in
doubt, don’t hesitate to ask.  (Note that several parts of the web site,
such as the manuals, are in CVS but not in guile-web.git.)
