How about a “current-directory” parameter object with

(current-directory) => string
(current-directory string)   ;; sets the current directory

just like current-output-port, current-exception-handler, etc

This has the advantage that each thread can manage their own current directory using “parameterize” to avoid interfeering with other threads
