How about creating a C function scm_object_name and a Scheme procedure
object-name, and using them for every name request?  It doesn't matter
how to implement it now.  We can modify it later on.

But if we want to print a name like #<procedure foobie in adder>, as
Jim says, we cannot simply use object-name.  Probably it is done by
defining a method `write' for procedures once GOOPS is integrated.
