I have to admit, I really don't like these sorts of modules. Automatic
checking of an example in a docstring is fine, but putting all the tests
in a docstring makes the docstring too big to be useful, and you lose
any compile warning time warnings guile can give you on the code.

Just my 2ยข, but glad it works for you.
