While it's not needed for the current concurrency branch, and I think
this implementation is fine for a first effort at adding concurrency,
I do believe that it will have to change in the longer term.

No.  I'm actually quite happy keeping xVAR accessor macros (for
let-bindable vars that will/may require special handling in a future
concurrency implementation) and xSET setter macros (for let-bindable
vars and/or for write barriers), to make it easier to experiment
on branches.
But I'd like those macros to have a shape that we can live with.
