My assumption would be that they in fact refer to different types, and
if you wanted both to refer to the same foo definition then you would
refactor that into c.scm.  This is based on treated records as (at
least potentially) first class objects, as opposed to C where they are
simple header declarations and it doesn't matter how often you
redefine them.
