Or one that's "sufficiently similar".

I think in part I was originally confused because I didn't understand
say --language very well (or what changing the language actually
affected), and in the end I realized (I think) that it's a fairly blunt
instrument with fairly broad effects, and so I reworked what I was doing
to never explicitly change the current language, i.e. to rely on compile
#:from #:to and load-compiled-file, etc.

So if this doesn't seem like any real issue as far as Guile is concerned
right now, feel free to disregard.

And thanks for the response.
