Well, if we can do it safely and fairly easily, I'd still be inclined
to add the code for ucontext_t on HP-UX because that lowers the bar
for future progress.  Is there a sufficiently specific test that you
think might be appropriate?

Well if your needs aren't short-to-medium term, or if your intended
purpose can handle a potentially very unstable guile, then you might
want to focus on CVS HEAD (i.e. 1.7).  However, if you need something
stable, then 1.6 is it.
