The problem is that I would like to keep the base system thread-less
(with the exception of the primordial thread, naturally). We don't
need the scheduler until we use srfi-18. One option would be to run
finalizers in a separate thread once we enable threading and just run
them in the primordial thread if threading is not enabled yet.

I'll create a ticket for this.
