Back when there was some debate about changing the Guile license, istr
that quite a few people spoke up that they used Guile quite a bit, but
the projects were mostly unknown because they were internal or
commercial, and didn't have a large "internet presence".

The Guile Community might be quite a bit larger than what you might
think based solely on mailling list activity or sourceforge projects
(or whatever).

I agree that there should be a nice library of code that people can
depend on.  When I first started learning Python, I was stunned by the
size of the library that came with it.

Fwiw, I've got some half finished zlib code laying around somewhere.
It could compress/decompress memory, but I got stuck trying to
compress/decompress scheme ports.  Anyone intrested in looking at it
and maybe adding it to the new Guile Library?
