If someone makes a dynamically loadable module to "add back" shared
substrings, will other dynamically loaded modules and the core of
guile interoperate with the new string type as a string type?   or
will it be disjoint from STRING?.

If it's disjoint from STRING?, would it be difficult to compile a new
version of the core and the other modules in which it wouldn't be
