i have an awkwardness about not being clear of the meaning of "Library
of Babel". my sense is it a collection of "subroutines".
in my typical use of Org mode for programming, all my code blocks are
defined in the same .org file, and executed in that file, or tangled to
external files (normally, scripts). i do use <<noweb>> to include bits
from one part of the same file to the code in another part. i don't
know if this means i am using the Library of Babel or not.
then, on to...
i also don't know what is going on. but, installing geiser,
geiser-guile, and running your code from the source block, looking at
the output results, i get an error that might mean something to you?
see below. (notice i embedded your call to =org-lob-timediff= at the
end of your source code.)
in addition to with elisp, i use org src blocks with R, shell scripts,
awk, etc. but, never (till now!) with scheme.
hth. good luck. i'll be curious what your next steps are.
