It's good to see that GNU Guile is going strong!

Since we're sharing hacks, here are a few from my project:

- An LDAP authenticator using the FFI and openldap:

We use it on a site-local deployment.

- HTTP digest authentication:

This has been tested against Virtuoso endpoints.

- Multi-format HTTP requests/responses for building RESTful interfaces:

It's not perfect, and probably needs some work to be generic enough to suite
other use-cases than the one I wrote it for.

Kind regards,
