Hey Ludo!

Thanks for your quick feedback. Given the time I spent debugging this
issue, I agree that this (guix config) module thing is hard to deal

If it works for you, I could create three new Guile libraries:

* Guile-libz
* Guile-liblz
* Guile-xz

or maybe just,

* Guile-compression

It would help us getting rid of (guix config) as you proposed.
