Thank you, yes that helps

In fact, it's a precious resource !

I was especially delighted with the examples of using exceptions !

I had so missed examples of those !

As for the manual, very recently a mention of Guile Hall ended up being
included in the manual

The same could be done with your examples collection

I also think that your collection could be mentioned by the Guile web site,
maybe in the "learn" section

Here's the repo for the web site:

a regular patch could do

What do people think of mentioning this resource on the Guile web site ?
