The Guile manual says:

> For historical reasons, the `SCM_DEFINE' macro also defines a static
> array of characters named `s_clear_image', initialized to the string
> "clear-image".  You shouldn't use this array, but you might need to be
> aware that it exists.

Why is using this discouraged?  libguile itself does!

And it's very convenient when raising errors in the function, or marking
the function for export using scm_c_export()...
