Yes, my feelings exactly.  But I also don't like the way SLIB is
integrated into Guile right now.

Hmm, I would like to have a system where you could do

    (use-modules (slib pp))

and you would get the equivalent of (require 'pp).  Maybe the SLIB
files would need to be changed tohave some kind of markup that says
which bindings hsould be exported, etc, but that should be to much
work and would hopefully be accepted into the upstream SLIB.
