Hi Marc,

Gambit's compiler is deterministic right?

(As in Scheme to GVM, GVM to C or binary. Underlying C compiler's
determinism is a separate matter altogether.)

A consideration could be that compilation output is a function of |gensym|
and therefore its counter must be managed for deterministic compilation.

Another consideration that if running more instances of the compiler in one
Gambit process concurrently, the |gensym| calls could have arbitrary order
and therefore determinism break.
