Yes, I saw `with-object' on a syntax branch and was about to ask you if
I could already commit to seems now it's `using'

with-object' feels Guily'er in a way, but `object' is maybe a bit vague?
`with-gobject' is longer than `with-g', and both mainly add more
crypticness over `object'.  `using' is shorter and better than send, I
like it :)

Ohh, wow -- thanks!!

This works for me, definately better.  I'm working on some silly guimax
bugs while finishing up the GTK C backend first and then come back to
Guile-GI wich is the preferred UI backend for Guimax, eventually ;)  So
timing is perfect.

On Guix, Guile-GI now needs glib and glib-bin to build, you can pull

(and some tests still fail, i'm sure you got that).

Thanks again,
