I guess since I don't really care to much about backward compat,
maybe we should just gut serveez-binary and replace it with

Seriously.  Guile 2.0.x is way too hard to build.  
I hope someday they can get the distros to package it, so I
don't have to build it any more.
But anyway, in Guile 2.0.x, SRFI-4 is implemented in
terms of bytevectors, so they are identical.
