I am not sure what "have FSF copyright assignment" means. I would not mind 
assigning copyright of that patch to FSF, but probably the paperwork would be 
way overblown for such a small change. I will simply add the "TINYCHANGE" then.

Oh, I thought I had one. Not sure how I lost my commit message title. o.o

This is the kind of stuff, that causes me to procrastinate so much. I know it is 
not your fault and I know there need to be some format regulations in place to 
have a good manageable cooperation when working on a community project. I just 
want to explain, why I am so slow in following up and initially sending the 
patch ; ) Not blaming anyone!

Right! I forgot about that one while writing : ) Will do!

Ah, I was not aware of that. Took all naming inspiration from the 
org-babel-expand-body:scheme function name and thought my separate function 
ought to have :scheme suffix : ) Will fix!

That was me thinking: "The name of the variable should just be itself, not 
wrapped in double quotes, because in Scheme I cannot create a variable as 
(define "abc" 123)". But maybe I misunderstood %s and %S. I also do not know, 
how elisp's `print' treats its arguments. Will use 2 times %S then.

Or do you mean, that I should be using `print'? I thought using only `format' is 
simpler, so I did not bother with `print' and then `format'. If I choose the 
correct format modifiers, `print' should be unnecessary, right? Or does `print' 
do some magic behind the scenes, that is not expressable using merely format

I am not sure I understand what you are referring to in the previous version. Do 
you mean that `print' quoted variable values with a single quote? Do you mean 
this part of the previous code:

(print `(,(car var) ',(cdr var)))

Am I not adding a newline? I think I do?:


    (lambda (var)
      (format "(define %S %S)" (car var) (cdr var)))


Is anything else required? Maybe 2 newlines instead? The previous version had a 
number of spaces as well, but since `define' is not creating additional indent 
like `let' should, I leave those away.

Thank you for the feedback!

I have a question or suggestion:

When I save the file in Emacs, my Emacs turns all the tabs in there into spaces. 
Probably my own custom global config's choice about indentation. Could a general 
mode line thing be added to avoid that and nail down the current formatting 
style, so that contributors only need to allow Emacs to run those settings and 
then not need to care about it? Currently the indentation style seems to be a 
mix of tabs and spaces.

(For example the GNU Guix project does a lot of formatting things in their 
files, that configure Emacs, so that the formatting will be automatically 
according to their practices.)

Otherwise the diff becomes huge and I have to discard all those tab -> spaces 
changes again, before I can make a patch. Or I have to edit in fundamental mode, 
which loses syntax highlighting and is what I have been doing. But even in 
fundamental-mode Emacs changes some of the indentation from tabs to spaces or 
spaces to tabs apparently. Maybe I should be editing with emacs -Q or something? 
But then I don't have magit. This creates quite some friction in the editing 
process for me. In fundamental mode, I have to discard 4-6 chunks, which I did 
not even touch, but which were changed in terms of what the indentation consists of.

And one more question:

Does the name of the patch file matter? Git changed the name and I will attach 
it as it was created by git. Hope that's alright.

Attached: The updated patch.

And of course: Let me know if it needs more changes.

Subject: [PATCH] org-babel-expand-body:scheme: define header arg vars using

* ob-scheme.el (org-babel-expand-body:scheme,
org-babel-expand-header-arg-vars:scheme): Change the way header
argument :var variables are expanded for for Scheme source blocks.  Use
`define' instead of wrapping using `let'.

Wrapping binding definitions using `let' can lead to issues with GNU
Guile and potentially other Scheme dialects.  GNU Guile will only get
to the body of the let at evaluation time, not at macro expansion
time.  If the let form wraps any imports of libraries that define
macros, then those imported macros are seen too late and their
corresponding forms inside the body of the let are not
expanded.  Using `define' to define bindings avoids this problem, at
least in GNU Guile.
