      But I think it's acceptable to have a few
    new primitives for convenience/performance, preferably abstracted
    above the level of any single language (e.g. a general dynamic binding

I agree with that principle.  It is useful to add general purpose
facilities to Guile to make it better for translating other languages

    No, it doesn't.

This is a serious issue.  Multi-thread support is a usefu thing, and
when we add primitives, we should preserve multi-thread support if at
all possible.

Can you and Guile developers work on a way to do this with
multi-thread support?
