For some people (including me) it is helpful to look at small pieces of
example code that demonstrate the use and the benefit of certain features.  
Especially in this case I would like to see some example code, since I
don't have an impression yet what Systas provides that guile doesn't.

Could you provide us with such an example for the port/descriptor
unification, please?
