I was unaware that we had a guile build system in Guix. 

What is it?
In the past I was the one who argued strongly for the build system and
for the no-autotools approach — I believe in the context of outreachy.
Unfortunately I was unable to make that part a reality.

Even so, I have been developing a solution that is part of this
discussion in the form of Guile Hall, which is a project manager for
Guile with strong integration with Guix & Autotools.

guile hall can be found here
As you can see, I have a horse in this race.  I would be very interested
in collaborating with others who feel strongly about this part of the
Guile/Guix user journey — either on improvements to Hall, Guix or on
other tooling.
