   What about importing slib's pretty-print into the Guile distribution
   as (ice-9 pretty-print)?  Will there be many fixes to pp.scm that
   need to be ported in the future?

it's hard to predict the future.  i have a feeling that slib's pp.scm is
stable and relatively bug free, but perhaps there will be enhancements
or reorganization.  generally, i wouldn't recommend increasing overlap.

on the other hand, a nice project would be to be to write some macros
that extend `define-module' so that slib's (foo:bar) could be used as
(begin (use-modules (ice-9 foo)) (bar))...  i've played around w/
"renaming-export" modules, but iirc a patch i submitted to allow user
extension of `define-module' was loudly ignored...
