guile-pg is definitely more feature-full in that case. and ttn's
guile-1.4 compatible guile-pg is much more fetaure-full than the
guile-1.6 compatible guile-pg generally available through distros.

If anyone is interested in porting and maintaining ttn's guile-pg so
that it's compatible with guile-1.8 and upwards, in return for bounties,
please contact me off-list.
