Why are we even using the unlocked versions?  They're thread-unsafe,
which means, if I understand correctly, that if you use CHICKEN with
for example the concurrent-native-callbacks egg, any code reading
from stdin is liable to break.

Is it for performance?  Is the impact big enough to matter?
Otherwise I'd vote to just use plain old standard getc().
