The main point of the current-directory conundrum is not the
`current-directory` procedure itself. It's all the other procedures.

If RnRS procedures take filenames relative to a per-thread
current-directory, but SRFI 170 takes them relative to the OS CWD, I'd
expect that to be quite confusing to users.
