If a module that you use supplies a binding, and you want that binding
to be available for users of your module, you must re-export it. This
applies to generics as well as other bindings. Lack of documentation on
this is a bug, though!

I'm pretty ignorant about this -- check ice-9/documentation.scm for
information about the commentary format, but as for function-by-function
documentation I don't know.

It seems I am thoroughly ignorant today ;) Dunno.
