or maybe it does, after all.

when the hypothetical future kernel-threaded Guile is running on a
real multiprocessor machine, is it guaranteed that the tag in the cell 
will be either the freecell tag or the target tag?  i.e. is there any
memory coherence guarantee?  I don't think so, but I don't know alot
about the subject.

A computer, to print out a fact,
Will divide, multiply, and subtract.
    But this output can be
    No more than debris,
If the input was short of exact.
