This would be super cool for writing Scwm modules, too-- I'd been
dreaming about this for a while, but it seems pretty hard, but the
payoff is great: modules could still be written in Scheme, still have
access to Scwm's data structures, but execute asynchronously in a
pre-emptively scheduled second process (a bit nicer than the cooperative
threads that Guile already has) that can crash and burn without killing
the window manager.
