Ah yeah, I've been bit by this before.  Though, I imagine we'd run into
a problem where we'd never know how to "garbage collect" anything in
~/.cache/guile/ .  "Maybe not a problem", except if you're hacking some files
constantly... :)

Maybe every guile hacker needs to get in the habit of
`rm -rf ~/.cache/guile/' though? :)
