Sorry for the delayed response. I seem to have missed this mail.

I'm no legal expert, but I think I am free to distribute it only
under LGPL-3.0-or-later (and not also ISC). And I prefer to do so.

For prior cases see modules/srfi/srfi-71.scm as distributed with
Guile. The file contains a SRFI sample implementation with the same ISC
license header. It seems to be fine to relicense modules distributed
with Guile as LGPL-3.0-or-later. In the Guix package definition for
Guile only license:lgpl3+ is listed (and not license:isc).
