Need API to box and unbox FILE* pointers as Scheme ports

Estimated difficulty: hard


The C API should be able to box a FILE* as a Scheme input port or output port.

There should also be a way to extract a FILE* from a Scheme port, or NULL if the port is not file-based.

Ideally this should be done by extending the list of foreign type specifiers.
