Re: gh_scm2doubles and friends

I think this is beautiful!

But we should add that gh_unlease_doubles also frees the LEASE.

BTW, there's the question whether gh_unlease_doubles will return a
scm_tc7_dvect or a scm_tc7_vector.

One solution is that unlease returns the same type as the original
vector (the one which was leased).

Maybe this was what you meant?
