I heard a rumor someone was working on a Foreign Function Interface.
Does anyone want to 'fess up?  How about just a Foreign Struct

Wrapping up GdkRectangle in 5 or 6 primitives was so much fun I had to
stop and consider writing a simple Foreign Struct Interface.  I did
that once years ago, but the grandiose object-oriented mess is on a
backup tape several thousand miles away, and it was, well, a mess.  I
just want a few primitives that take a foreign pointer and a member
offset and burp up a string/integer/float/pointer.  Maybe a nice
define-foreign-struct syntax too... not too small.  And with a white
picket fence around it??
