I'd like to have (1) and (2):

        - launching guile
        - using the main module (the one that uses many many others)
 |      - 'launching manually' my app
 |      - killing the app-main-window to further develop/debug ...
 |      - 'manually' loading the gui-app-file for modified code

        - being abble to use the guile listener rpl at any time to 
          'manually check widget contents or what ever ...

Hope someone can tell me how to di this. We used to have a guile-gtk binary
that allowed us to do so: we just would comment the call to

        ;; (gtk-standalone-main window)
while developping.
