It's ok. You may close it.

I still think it could be less confusing if the libguile.so implemented/provided
functions as advertised in Guile API docs for the sake of interfacing to
languages other than C. And &scm_from_int wold also work if it were a real

But there are many more macros, so such a link-time interface would be a
lot of work, I realize by now.
