 I don't know scheme and I have no plans or resources to maintain the
guile code. I can simply ping you if there is an issue.

These functions have been deprecated since very long time and they are
now useless as gnutls since 3.2.0 doesn't support RSA-EXPORT at all. My
suggestion would be to keep the functions if you want to keep some ABI
compatibility and simply return an error or so.
