Hi. One feature I find valuable in Java that I miss in C++ (and
Scheme, for that matter) is the idea of a "finally" clause. Would
srfi-34 be a sensible place to put one of these - either alongside the
try clause, on its own, or bound up together with it, as perhaps

	  (mutex-lock! m)
	  (finally (mutex-unlock! m)
