Just a quick note to say:

0. I'm still reading.  ;-)

1. Your `init.d' approach looks very promising and simpler than the one
   before, which is good.

2. I'd let the files in the `init.d' directory do a
   `(require-load-path-directory ...)' rather than just containing the
   directory name.  A good reason for this is that it is anyway very
   easy to evaluate those files in a confined environment
   (e.g. `null-environment' + the `require-load-path-directory'

3. I'm a bit concerned that this approach is not scalable: opening,
   reading, and evaluating say a dozen of files each time Guile is
   started may have a noticeable impact on startup time.

   Maybe those could be loaded lazily, for instance in
   `try-module-autoload', the first time `%search-load-path' fails.
