   I recently learn a technique where, during 'make', one 'cat' all the
   sources files together, forming a big, single executable script. Doing
   so, there is no need to install the .scm files, because they are all
   inside the same executable file.

This is the technique used in RPX:

It generalizes "compilation" from simple concatentation to include other
program-specific transforms.  End result is two files to (un)install:

 - $(bindir)/rpx
 - $(infodir)/

No fuss, no muss.

As for the distinction between "data" and "non-data", i tend to view anything
without the executable bit set as data, and all data as programs-in-waiting.
