This is not ideal, but would some kind of manually run test that does
things like that (build a bunch of pathological-case scores 100 times)
be a bad idea? There would be a maintenance burden, but it might mean we
catch problems before breaking users' scores. The test could be run (by
a human) when there's a new Guile release, or before we do a stable
release, or some such.
