Guile-Syscalls 0.5 available

release notes:

  This is a maintenance release, and the last one, as well, for this
  package.  Functionality has moved to ttn-do (and compatibly extended):

  The directory <>
  will be removed after 2010-03-31.

  Speaking of ttn-do (publicly and tangentially, that is), its NEWS
  is now a sliding window instead of only the latest.  See top-level
  GNUmakefile var `rellog' and target `dist' for the implementation.
  (I mention this because somewhere in the back of my mind there is a
  chat fragment with Andy Wingo some months ago re ChangeLog generation
  on "make dist" and this brings partial closure to that.)

  As for the connection between Guile-Syscalls and ttn-do, the procs
  `iovec', `writev' and `readv' are central to the X protocol i/o
  manager in module (ttn-do zzz x-protocol).  I tend to think these
  should be moved into Guile proper.  IIUC, they are POSIX, after all:


README excerpt:

  This directory contains Guile-Syscalls, a set of modules
  that expose to Guile 1.4.x a selection of the operating
  system programming interface (known as the syscalls).
