Perhaps I should better have written, 'the one area I might have had
something to contribute in is now gone.'  I'm not very good at
programming, I'm afraid, despite how much I like it.  Sad but true.

The general radix conversion algorithm was the one thing I though I
might have a chance at.  Of course, I couldn't wrap my head around the
_old_ code, so that's really rather doubtful.

I'm afraid that I don't actually have an up-to-date guile installation
to test against.  Maybe this'll give me an incentive to do it.

The one thought I had was that it should be possible to do away with the
static array initialisation.  Maybe someday I'll be able to work on

Once again, thanks for the good work.
