That would not be my first thought when meddling with code I know
nothing about, and where I assume that somebody had created it because
of some inherent necessity.  And not every dead end needs to be entered
repeatedly.  It is a waste of time.

But I think that guile's module system changed in the last few years, so
it is actually possible that some necessities went away since the code
was written.

I'll probably take a look.
