The thread here:


illustrates an interesting problem with Guile's approach to signals. What we have now is almost certainly wrong in the standalone Scheme case. In the case where Guile is embedded in another app, I'm not sure if we should do anything regarding signals, though.

This is an issue that needs careful thought, a decision, possibly code, and definitely documentation.
