Woow, this is great news! I think it would be great towards importing
it in Guile proper.
To do that, I think we should first get Andy’s opinion on the approach.
I don't think upstream is very interested in having psyntax-pp.scm
bootstrappable. In Guile 3.0.3 they broke even the `make
ice-9/psyntax-pp.scm.gen` target, and did not repair it even in Guile
3.0.5, that's why I used 3.0.2 for the bootstrap. But I included a patch
to repair it in 3.0.5 in case you really want to bootstrap that version
(psyntax-pp.scm has not changed there). OTOH, from the git log it seems
like psyntax is currently being overhauled for the next release, so
probably my code would need some updates for the next version.
Also, in the last 15 years I avoided directly contributing to "GNU
projects" (with FSF as copyright holder in the license headers), reasons
below. But if anyone else takes my code and upstreams it, I won't object.
Regardless, even when not part of Guile, I believe this code is very
useful for both the live-bootstrap project and Guix to get their Guile
bootstrapped. And even if nobody ever updates it for 3.0.6+, you can
always bootstrap the later versions from an earlier Guile. And maybe a
variation of it lands in GNU Mes, too.
