Just to chuck in my two cents worth, I too think it'd be good to have
a _exit available.  This would help guile-gtk, since gtk recommends
that _exit be used in a child process after forking.

But I don't know if it should be primitive-exit doing this or a new
function.  I guess it depends whether there's a case for wanting C
level atexit cleanups but not scheme level unwinds.
