Sorry for the confusion.  In 1.8.0 the documentation on breakpoints is
out of date and the required Scheme modules are not actually present.
For 1.8.0 you should download the guile-debugging package from Gna
(via the latest news item), and also refer to the documentation in the
same place, which should be correct.

Yes, this is in progress right now.  I don't think it will be in time
for the next stable release (1.8.1), though.

Yes, I am working on this at part of the merge.

See the Gna doc at  You can
ignore anything with "gds" in the name if you're only interested in
setting breakpoints programmatically.  This doc should be correct (for
the guile-debugging package), so if anything here doesn't work, please
let me know.
