Ludovic> Would it work, upon SIGINT, to do something like:
Ludovic>   (system-async-mark (lambda ()

According to the Guile docs one must use scm_sigaction, since
scm_system_async_mark is not async-signal-safe.

However scm_sigaction takes over the signal.  I don't think that will
work ok.  Also this idea doesn't address how it would interact with the
gdb core or with Python.
