No, if Guile does not at all times know the top of the stack (or enough
of it) it can inappropriately collect objects still in use and cause a 

I have some experimental Guile patches lying around however, that make
Guile find the top of the stack automagically, so it can be initialized
from anywhere, not just direct from main().
