Hey Mike,

Woohoo, nice!

The manual has this example:

  guile -L . -c '(use-modules (gi)) (display (export-typelib "Gtk" "3.0"))' > 
  guile -L . -c '(use-modules (gi)) (display (export-typelib "Gio" "2.0"))' > 

I wonder if there could be a macro providing the same functionality as
‘export-typelib’ such that the typelib file would be interpreted at
macro-expansion time.  :-)

Anyway, thumbs up!
