In the long term it'd be great if someone who installed guile could just do
"#!sweet" and have the rest of the sweet-expression implementation loaded,
in the same way it already happens with libraries.  Ideally this would eventually
happen without having to install anything other than guile.

Guile already includes a number of non-standard libraries that users
can choose to use.  My goal would be to make this another feature
that people could choose to use.

The same would be true for other implementations, too (e.g., Racket).
