Probably refering to a suggestion i made a while ago: porting
an existing application to newer versions of guile will be a rather
large task - there are a lot of API changes (for some more than one
would expect in a minor version change ...). Live of application 
developers could be considerably made easier with a header file 
that provides cpp macros that fake vanished functions/types.

I do see the beauty and neccessity of consistently named types and
functions, but from my own experience i know that having to wade through
my code  replacing renamed symbols when i'd rather be hunting for the
'real' changes can get rather frustrating. A compatibility header would
lessen the pain:

#define scm_sizet size_t
