Proposed Structure

This is a summary of work in progress. If you see core procedures missing, please add them to a suitable library and notify Evan of your changes.

Note that queues, memory-mapped-files, binary-search, scan-input-lines, group-information and object-evict have already been evicted (heh) from core and into eggs (see #1142). Please don't add their procedures.

Below, patch means a relevant patch has been posted, partial means some work has been done but some remains, and done means what you'd expect. module-definitions means the module itself has been carved out but the definition is still in the "wrong" place.

move-module? means the module itself might be defined in the wrong place.

Other things

To make CHICKEN fully modular, these have to find a home under one of the above namespaces.

##sys#slot, ##sys#setslot, ##sys#setislot
rename to

unsafe-block-ref, unsafe-block-set! and unsafe-block-set-immediate! and move under (chicken memory ???) where block-ref and block-set! are?
