release notes:

  Moving right along.  I suppose next step is be to call out to the Guile
  2.x. compiler from the Guile-WWW module munger.  Hmmm...


README excerpt:

  This is the Guile WWW library, a set of Guile Scheme
  modules to facilitate HTTP, URL and CGI programming.

NEWS excerpt:

  - 2.36 | 2012-11-22

    - portability fixes

      - import some procs explicitly (Guile 1.4.x)

        Guile 1.4.x does not implicitly provide, e.g., SRFI 13.

      - use appropriate u8 i/o procs

        The "compiler" (har har) build-aux/guile-baux/mm, in cahoots w/
        the configure script, now tries to DTRT for various versions of
        Guile.  Precisely:

        1.4.x -- custom procs based on ‘read-char’ / ‘display’
        1.8   -- uniform-vector-{read!,write} (the "normal" case)
        2.x   -- custom procs based on those in ‘(ice-9 binary-ports)’

        With this change, "make check" under Guile 2.0.6 no longer
        displays any deprecation warnings.  Any that you might encounter
        (for any Guile) is now considered a bug; please report it.

      - avoid ‘\n’ in sed ‘s’ RHS (FreeBSD)

        This was a problem in the "make check" prep (test harness).

      - less "values outside ‘call-with-values’ context"

        Another case was found, but this was internal.  Perhaps others
        lurk -- why doesn't Someone just do a formal audit already?!

    - bootstrap tools upgrade
      - GNU Automake 1.12.5
      - Guile-BAUX 20121120.1242.e233fad
