I understand what you’re saying (I’m quite familiar with Guile’s module
system :-) and I do agree that #:ensure #t can lead to bad surprises),
but I don’t think this is correct:

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
scheme@(guile-user)> (resolve-interface '(xxx))
ice-9/boot-9.scm:1685:16: In procedure raise-exception:
no code for module (xxx)

Entering a new prompt.  Type `,bt' for a backtrace or `,q' to continue.
scheme@(guile-user) [1]> ,q
scheme@(guile-user)> (resolve-module '(xxx) #f #:ensure #f)
$1 = #f
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

This is because ‘resolve-interface’ does (resolve-module … #:ensure #f).

Does that make sense?
