No.  There was extensive discussion about essentially this issue on
the SRFI list.  The advantage of the approach advocated by the SRFI is
that the script doesn't have to run when it's loaded, but, for example
can be tested easily in an interactive environment.

(I don't mind not tying down the name of the script library.)
