In the end, perhaps.  But that may happen through some opaque interface,
for example syslog.  A Scheme version of the syslog() API would expect
strings; the ports to be used are determined at the C level.

Thanks for  this example.  However the concept  behind it is
that syslog has a  port-like interface, abstracting it would
also be  IMHO the way  to go.  I  am surely too much  on the
idealistic side of Scheme :D  But Ok, let's say that for the
sake of practical needs (WG2)  I could bear with this design
