FWIW, I wish we had an alternative to Guix and autotools for pure-scheme
packages, which don't need all that complication (and that i would love
to see becoming the norm, with that pretty FFI of ours).  Something
like, say, leiningen (or elpa, raco, rebar3, cargo, gobuild, elpa,
cabal...).  For context:

I'd call it "wile", packages would live in "the wilery" ( is
free) and wile.scm would probably use a simplified dorodango
syntax... and i'd even work on it.  But my feeling is that the community
is heavily invested in autotools and Guix as /the/ build system (and
very happily so!) and i don't have the evangelising chops/time :)
