Excellent. If that works, Guile needs the same thing.

(I'm afraid, though, the approach is not without its problems as the
concatenation of two raw bytes might yield a valid UTF-8 encoding of a
single character. I don't know if full bijectivity can be achieved.)

As long as Guile can manage anything Linux throws at it, I'm fine with
it. As it stands, a couple of chinks in the armor have been identified.
