The removal of the scm_i_* functions is an ABI break in the stable 1.8
series. It should be reverted. (It's a great fix for master though.)

It breaks apps compiled with older versions of guile 1.8. Guile-gnome is
not affected too much -- a couple instance of scm_i_symbol_length (not
something that can currently be dealt with with version #ifdeffing, as
the version is still 1.8.5), but more seriously the port table, with the
scm_i_port_table_mutex. (The port API sucks, I know.)
