I'm liking this technique and I will experience a little more with it.

I wonder if there is a tool to, say, strip all comments from the
"binary", so it could be smaller. I guess such tool would not be that
hard to write, but I don't know.

But I guess, in the end, the way to go would be using the new
compilation technology from guile 2.0, although not for now, as I'm
running 1.8.
