Thanks, that's helpful.  The trouble is that such a file is an internal
(not publicly documented, unstable) format.  So if I want to ship portable
code along with type information for Chicken, I have to:

1) insert the type declarations in the code

2) compile with the -emit-type-file option

3) strip out the declarations again

4) hope the .types file continues to work with new compiler releases

That's really intolerable.  I suppose if I confine myself to : and
define-type, then I could ship my code along with macros that turn them
into (begin).
