Can't you, for instance, change the Libtool interface number for
`libguile'?  That's ugly, and would require recompilation of all
packages depending on it, but at least it would allow you to produce
thread-enabled packages for the remainder of 1.8.x.

OTOH, I don't remember seeing any "serious" thread-related bug fix since
1.8.0.  Or did I miss it?
