I like it. I don't know why this didn't occur to me.

This also allows documentation, in the form of commentaries, and as the
'documentation object property. A support macro would be nice, something
like (define-docs var docs) or so.

The only problem I see with this is if there are guile-specific
optimizations relevant to a package. Then you have to maintain a set of
private diffs. But that's not so much maintainance.

(BTW, I think ssax is part of a family of sxml processing tools produced
by oleg&co, so I call it (sxml ssax). Seems reasonable. But no projects should go there.)

Thanks for the input, yo.
