'install-suspendable-ports!' replaces only a subset of the C port
functions with Scheme implementations, namely the ones listed in

and are not reimplemented by suspendable-ports.scm.  When you perform
I/O on the custom port, it enters C code in r6rs-ports.c which calls
back into Scheme code to call your custom I/O handlers 'read!' and
