This path seems the one to go.  It will take less time than running
Guile on Windows. ;-)

The only issue is that your code will depend on Guile 3.0.x where x>4.  

Otherwise, why is it not possible to send a patch to Guile?

The ’mkdir-p’ version in (guix build utils) is the same as 2012.  So I
am not convinced that you will need to update it really often.

One package making one-function package will call other one-function
packages. :-)
