Pffffft.  We can replace those occurences, either with something else or
a conditional.  However, I read

commit 9fe717e23c50680b77860dcb3e30b00184caba4f

    fix string-filter and string-delete argument order
    * libguile/srfi-13.h:
    * libguile/srfi-13.c (scm_string_filter, scm_string_delete): Swap
      char_pred and s argument order, to comply with SRFI-13. There is a
      back-compat shim that will detect programs that used the old,
      erroneous interface, while giving a warning.
    * doc/ref/api-data.texi: Update docs.

So what's up with the "back-compat shim" ?

Should just cause a warning though.

The main problem I remember was a coding problem.  It did not like
working with UTF-8 characters.
