   maybe we should just gut serveez-binary and replace it with
   SRFI-4. [...]  in Guile 2.0.x, SRFI-4 is implemented in terms
   of bytevectors, so they are identical.

OK, thanks for confirming.

I think SRFI 4 is a good compromise for implementation "platform".
Whether or not serveez-binary lives on is something i will mull
over and report back.  I suppose it would be easier to backport
(if the mood strikes) SRFI 4 to Guile 1.3.4 than to maintain
serveez-binary going forward.

Random thought: IIRC R7RS is SRFI 4 friendly and somewhat
antagonistic towards R6RS- (and thus Guile 2.x-)style bytevectors.
