I stand corrected - thanks!

Interestingly, this of itself raises further questions about what the
gh interface should be and what changes we should make to it.  Is
there some process for changing the gh interface in such a way that
both MzScheme and Guile are updated accordingly?

It's also interesting that there are several current emails about
usage of the gh interface.  (And I wish I knew the answers!)  Clearly
people are trying to use gh, so it's well worth thinking about how it
can be improved.

Thoughts anyone?
