Just because for my Guile code, I prefer to depend only on Guile itself:
I want to make my scripts always work, even if a system I use doesn't
have anything installed, except of Guile.

I use the same "policy" for my Emacs config: I use several dozens of
external packages, but my config doesn't require them, it works even if
only Emacs is installed (without any external packages).
