Guile-PG 0.40 available

release notes:

  The big news is that Guile-PG has ventured a bit out of Guile-1.4.x
  land.  Perhaps not very far (see file test/OK), but it's a start.
  More importantly is that the infrastructure is now in place for
  easier going later.  Who knows -- maybe we'll get to beta (0.80)
  this year, 0.40 is just a bit-shift away! :-D

  The somewhat mysterious "AAL" below stands for Autoconf, Automake,
  Libtool.  For more info on the Guile-BAUX slogging-soul-sustenance
  software, see <>.


README excerpt:

  Guile-PG is a collection of modules for Guile allowing access to
  the PostgreSQL RDBMS from Scheme programs.

  The low-level module ‘(database postgres)’ provides an almost
  one-to-one correspondence with the PostgreSQL "libpq" C library
  interface.  Other higher-level modules, typically named
  ‘(database postgres-FOO)’, provide abstractions and convenience

  This is alpha code (pre 1.0 release), tested with various, but
  not all, versions of Guile and PostgreSQL.  It may have bugs,
  and the interfaces may change from version to version.

  To build Guile-PG you need to have installed both the PostgreSQL
  frontend library libpq, and a version of Guile that can either
  load binary module (a b c) from file a/b/ or a/b/c/
  under ‘%load-path’, or provide ‘dynamic-link’ and ‘dynamic-call’.
