I think it would be great, though there’s some friction: modules still
in flux are better kept in Guix proper because we can change them as we
see fit; modules that have become stable could be externalized, provided
someone steps up to maintain them and make frequent releases.

Recently Chris Webber integrated (guix hash) and (guix pk-crypto) into a
broader guile-gcrypt library, which I think is a good thing: this part
was stable enough and it’s definitely better to have one guile-gcrypt
project that everyone can build upon.  Guix will use it once there’s
been a release or two I think.  :-)

For smaller modules like records, workers, utils, I would suggest
integrating them into Guile proper or Guile-Lib maybe.
