Then this does not work well

(fold min (inf) (list 1 2000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000 3 4))

which is a pity, we should have an exact inf as well

Because inf's result is inexact. The same as (min 3 3.5) is inexact,

It seems that the `inexactness' is contagious across arithmetic
generics (I haven't found an explicit place in the Guile docs;
the racket docs are more explicit about that).
