I don't have a strong feeling about the shared library issue as long
as none of the versioning requirements are broken.  However, I'm still
opposed to the addition of new scm_ functions that aren't intended to
be public, but don't use the scm_i_ prefix.

For better or for worse, people have long been advised to look at the
Guile headers/source in addition to the documentation, especially when
the documentation wasn't as good, and they've also been told about the
scm_i_ convention.

I've assumed that convention myself when reading the source, and
whether we maintain a public/private distinction via a naming
convention or via public/private headers, I think it's a good idea.
