Only part of it.  The following change in 1.6 makes Han-Wen's life
much somewhat easier, I think:

2005-06-10  Han-Wen Nienhuys  <address@hidden>

        * gc.c (scm_init_storage): make scm_stand_in_procs a weak_key hash
        table. This means that procedure properties are GC'd if the
        procedure dies.

Not really, tho there is 'only' the thread-robustness review to be
done and we might think about doing it after 1.8 since it will
probably need no changes to the API...
