release notes:

  First usable release under Guile 2.x.  Very slow, though,
  probably because we are still ‘GUILE_AUTO_COMPILE=0’.

README excerpt:

  This is rpx, a port of ratpoison to Guile Scheme.
  Although initially intended as a proof-of-concept exercise
  to plumb ttn's ignorance of X11, Scheme, and good taste,
  the result has proven to be useful as well.

  Despite rpx veneration of ratpoison look, feel, and
  internal design, there have been some unavoidable
  concessions to some of the more hairy parts of Xlib (the
  reimplementation of which is shared somewhat uneasily by
  rpx and ttn-do).  These are listed in the manual.

NEWS for 1.3 (2020-11-08):

  - distribution now .tar.lz

    If you have GNU tar, you can use "tar xf" and it will DTRT.
    If not, you can use "lzip -dc TARBALL | tar xf -" to unpack
    the .tar.lz.

  - configure no longer requires 32-bit system

    It was easier than expected.  Convenient abstractions FTW!

  - bugfixes

    Some syntax errors, even.  Lucky Guile 2.x catches that stuff.

  - bootstrap/maintenance tools

    upgraded:

     Guile-BAUX 20201107.2326.90cbc77
     GNU gnulib 2020-11-04 23:13:40
     GNU Autoconf 2.69d

    as before:

     GNU Automake 1.16.2
     GNU texinfo 6.7

tarball, etc, in dir:

Are you aware of Guile XCB?  Perhaps it could be used to avoid having to
reimplement Xlib features.

Yes, that sounds like a good idea.

RPX has been around since 2010 and predates Guile-XCB by a few
years (v1.0 released in 2013, IIUC).

At the moment, i'm pondering Xrandr support.  I wonder if/how
Guile-XCB handles that...
