Consider reaching out to Andy Wingo (wingo in IRC in #guile). I hope I am not 
laying this issue at his feet by suggesting this, but I have interacted with 
him a handful of times, and he is a genuinely nice and helpful person, and also 
a guile maintainer. I am pretty confident he would want to help make this 
problem better -- especially if there are those willing to do some work.

Good luck! I have also found myself hunting around for basic functionality, and 
not being a guiler, nor even a schemer (I love lisps, but I mostly write 
emacs-lisp and common-lisp), wondering why things are fragmented into weird 
modules. It's a shame, because I feel like I would be contributing bigger 
features to Guix if I could stop bouncing off the language.
