On a related topic, in order for Guile 1.8 to make it into Debian etch
(the upcoming stable release), we're essentially out of time to fix
this problem.  Because of this I'm contemplating uploading the initial
Guile 1.8 packages with --with-threads=no.

Does anyone see any major problems with this stopgap?  It seems better
to have Guile 1.8 in etch without threads than not to have it at all.

Note that this issue doesn't just affect Guile.  It's my understanding
that unless Guile 1.8 packages are uploaded very soon, the newer
version of lilypond won't make it into etch either.
