I'd rather just require a specific version of 1.8.5... Anyway, if you
want to do this, once the savannah thing goes through I'll add you to
the project :)

This kind of thing is what I'd like to avoid. Users won't notice the
difference if a newer guile-lib requires the latest release of a
specific stable series, since stable series are compatible.

(math rationalize) also had unclear licensing, so I'm inclined to keep
it out. (container queue) was never documented -- but doing a google
code search finds one user... (container async-queue). So I should
probably add it back then, sigh...

I really don't want to be in the position of being "responsible" for
poorly documented modules.


Pushed out to, still waiting for
the asynchronous project start on savannah...
