I'm now converting my code to use scm_spawn_thread instead of
pthread_create.  This is not a problem, but there doesn't seem to be
any public interface to get a scm_t_thread out of the SCM object.
This is a serious problem because even functions such as
scm_thread_join take scm_t_thread arguments, and are thus unusable
outside of Guile.

What should I do about this?
