Thank you everyone for the nice feedback. There's been so much of it
here and elsewhere!
I'm also glad people would like the .info version packaged in Guix.
I'll get on that shortly. Actually yewscion / Christopher Rodriguez has

I'll try to update it and push up to Guix proper soon.
Thank you again everyone. There's more exciting Scheme / Guile-oriented
things coming from the Spritely Institute too... stay tuned!
