If you need to support older versions of Guile, then you can't use any
data structures we add now anyway, correct? So it seems like you will
have to implement growable vectors yourself no matter what.
If you want to, though, you could look at the implementation of vlists
in Guile 2.0, which I think is all in Scheme. See
Even if we can't fix it, it is still nice to hear about data
structures you wish Guile had, so that in a few more versions this
might not be a problem for you.
