In fact, it's better to use


in which case some of the complexity disappears.

One obvious reason is that there is no documentation.  We should
really have a simple example of how to enable debugging from C and how
to use scm_internal_stack_catch to print out all error information.

Regarding looking for new/better solutions: It's probably good to
follow closely what happens with regard to error handling in the SRFI
process.  Relevant SRFIs are, at least, 34, 18 (exception handlers,
`raise' in thread context), 23, 35, 36.
