Always good advice, of course. In fact I have implemented it that way
for now. In the end, I think performance will be less of a concern for
me than reliability. I admit that I am still somewhat suspicious of
non-linear continuations and C code... :)

So it may change in the future, but for now with my newly rebuilt
libguile, it works like a charm exactly as we've discussed. Thanks all
for your help and advice.
