For what it's worth, I know about your implementation for a long time, but I've 
never tried to use it because I don't know where to start. Is it not possible 
to package these libraries so that users can simply install them as any other 
guile library? Say:

$ guix install r7rs-srfi-64

I see that Guile can be run with the "--r7rs" option "to better support R7RS"...
