OK, I'm stumped. Here's the story:
[Synopsis: adding stuff to Scheme for some users]
Would it work to make your package the user package?
changes the user package, which is the default package
for `load', among other things.
I can almost get what I want by doing:
(load "foo" (get-package 'user-layouts))
Which is ugly enough given that `get-package' is this undocumented
procedure that I have to access from a structure named
`package-commands-internal'. But it works. Except if I dump my system out
-- which I -really- need to do to make its startup time less than glacial
-- then the call to `get-package' results in:
(record-ref #f 3)
I have been unable to reproduce this. Dumping an image and
reloading it should have no effect on `get-package, and as far
as I can tell it doesn't. Can you send me the code?
