I know you're asking about how to wrap up 2.2, and here

If I had to come up with my own personal lists of features
I'd love to claim for a future release.

* A string encoding that can handle raw bytes

* Some helper funcs for debugging.  For example, I just found
  out (after a decade) that Guile comes with its own pk.  Also,
  a "break REPL here when condition is true" procedure would
  be great.  I've sometimes rolled my own with ",break acos" and
  adding (acos 0.0) for the location in question.

* Fix GDB support.
