Hi Ricardo,

After seeing Blake's talk I remembered about guile-picture-language, which
looks awesome. I'd like to play with it (and add it to Homebrew Guile) but
unfortunately there's no release tarball as far as I know. For those poor
people not using Guix, would it be possible to cut a release with a tarball?

Thank you!
