The problem is if other libraries do the same thing, ie. put an
strcasecmp in.  I expect you get clashes that'd stop an application
using certain combinations of libraries, or getting mis-detections of
what's available where, etc.

For namespace cleanliness any globally visible symbol in libguile really
has to have an scm_ (or probably scm_i_) prefix.  Is gnulib setup to
help libraries with that?  Nosing around it looks like perhaps not yet.
