I apologize for my short answers.  I'm not intending to be rude.

My previous post was targetted at Neil, another Guile developer.

I think in this case what is needed is not new Guile features but new
documentation.  Unfortunately, I don't have time to write that

Applicable smobs are easy to use.  Until documentation is available
you might want to look for the function scm_set_smob_apply in the
Guile sources.

Good luck!
