     You can approach the problem either by embedding or extending
Gambit-C. The embedding case will give you a program in less time
because you won't need to write bindings to GTK+. On the other hand,
once the bindings are written, you can reuse them in several different

     When embedding Gambit-C you have to initialise it before calling
any Scheme functions with ___setup().
