More arguments for C routines

I have patched STk3.0b1, adding the types tc_subr_4..tc_subr_10. That
is, I can now use external C functions of up to 10 parameters without
disassembling lists in my C functions, which I find tedious.

I have noticed that stopping at 3 parameters seems to be a Scheme
standard. Is there a reason for this or did everyone just think using
lists after that was easier? I'm making an interface to OpenGL, and
some functions require 9 parameters.

The changes are simple. If there is no inherent problem with this, I
will make them available.
