Here is fine, because (i) there isn't a more specific list for
guile-debugging (ii) guile-debugging is planned to become part of core
Guile (iii) it is likely to be of interest to Guile users in general.

No, I haven't experienced this.  Can you provide more details so I can
try to reproduce it?

Thanks, I'll take a look at the patch.  Conceptually, however, the
issue is how this would interact with the existing behaviour of C-x
SPC when there is no region, namely to set a breakpoint on the
procedure whose definition contains point.  Do you have any suggestion
for that?

Thanks; it's an ongoing project, as far as I'm concerned.
