Indeed and your work is highly appreciated!!
Regrettable you didn't get much (down to zero) feedback.
That was partly due to guile-2-versions not released or not available
in any distro or (mostly) not working.

The first guile-version possible to work with, was 2.10.12, released July 2016.
Ok, I missed it. Otoh, this version was never packed by ubuntu and/or debian.
guile-2.0.13 was released Octobre 2016.

For me the very first opportunity to have a closer look at all. And it
was a hassle to get guile-2.0.13. Should be easier now with the
discussed containers. Probably Federico will solve the
LilyDev-problems as well, which would get us some more people
involved, at least I hope so.

Meanwhile another issue

(procedure-source guile-v2)
into the scheme-sandbox I get the following results:

(lambda () (string>? (version) "1.9.10"))


Hmm, not nice...


The current thread blows up more and more.
I'll start new ones for looking on single/limited problems
