Actually, this is what I was asking about.
(Guile people told me to use C or bins, but I don't want to go that deep.)

Is it possible not to remove types?
Vincent told me that one can "mix typed and untyped code" in Racket.
How it's done in Racket (the implementation details)? How these modules
interact? Could you give me some pointers?
Why it's not possible in other Lisp-like languages (e.g. Guile)?
