Ah, but SRFI 151 is not implemented in my version of Guile:
scheme@(guile-user)> (use-modules (srfi srfi-151))
While compiling expression:
no code for module (srfi srfi-151)
Guile version: 2.2.6 from Guix:
guile (GNU Guile) 2.2.6

Are you suggesting, that I copy the code for SRFI 151 from somewhere and
put it into my project?
