There is certainly much room for improvement.  I really appreciated your
bug reports and patches, especially since the main Guile hackers all use
GNU systems for development.  We haven't merged them all in yet, but
it's more due to a lack of time than anything else.

Portability is an ongoing challenge, as we write new code, but it's
something we can reach with help and persistence.

I'm pretty excited about BT's proposal.  BT has the right mix of care
for detail and audacity that seems necessary for a hack of this size :)
