I would imagine that --with-threads will not be turned back on until a 1.10.x 
(or 2.0.0 ?) release of Guile.

My limited understanding of the situation (possibly incorrect):  Using 
--without-threads changes the sizes of some data structures (I'm guessing they 
are smaller, with some pthreads stuff #ifdef'ed out), so that code compiled for 
one way will segfault when linked with code compiled for the other way.

As far as just releasing new packages --with-threads, It's just not possible to 
go back an recompile all the currently existing packages on already existing
