   Any suggestions [...] will be welcome

I looked at the doc file and have these suggestions:

- In Scheme, it is customary to say "procedure" instead of "function".
  I suggest 8.13.2 Interfaces from Guile to `make' explicitly state that
  (for those unfamiliar w/ Scheme), and then liberally specify "function"
  for Make functions and "procedure" for Scheme procedures.

- The ‘#t => t’ distinguishes the symbol t from others, which feels wrong.
  I suggest #t => ""; #f => error.

- Give more details for ‘other => error’.  Since this feature is new,
  there will be many debugging opportunities :-D, so the better you
  define this condition, the easier it will be for users to use, and
  for you to get feedback for further iteration.

That's all.  Looking forward to playing w/ this feature!
