I'd be interested to know how it works without a master thread, but
you're right, basically I don't ever want the program to exit unless I
send it some sort of signal.  Putting a (thread-sleep! +inf.0) at the
end of the script basically does what I'm looking for.  Thanks for
hashing through my problem.
