 (define foo 42)
(set-object-property! foo 'documentation "my foo thing")
,a foo
(guile-user): foo
,d foo
my foo thing
(define (bar) (list 'a))
(set-object-property! bar 'documentation "this bar does stuff")
,a bar
(guile-user): bar #<procedure bar ()>
(guile): module-obarray-ref #<procedure module-obarray-ref (ob key)>
,d bar
this bar does stuff

where ,a is short for ,apropos and ,d is short for ,describe
