Be brave - say it: let's kill the GH interface.  If someone else wants the
name for a new project, then they can have it.  It's not like it's such a
great name that we have to find it a home!  I may be mistaken but it seems
to me that any cross-interpreter scheme API would have to start from
scratch anyway.  Most of the current GH is just renamed scm_ functions and
thin C wrappers, all of which are dependent on the SCM type system.
