I thought basic input worked?  To be sure, the "stable" Guile-2
repeatedly changed details of character encodings/conversions where
stuff that once worked stopped again.  So I don't know the current
state.  But covering basic input should mostly be lower hanging fruit
than some of the really ugly memory allocation stuff that has been fixed
in the mean time.
