Since it appears there are no primitives to do this I have ported 
the mzscheme procedures.  The API definitions seem fine to me, and 
the implementation is good with regards to size and type checks.  

The intial guile version is packaged as a dynamically loaded module, 
however I would like to submit this work for consideration for 
inclusion in the guile distribution since it seems to me a useful 
set of primitives*.   Is this list the correct place to submit 


* They are, for example, enough to cleanly implement the 
OpenSoundControl protocol, which is the purpose of this work
