To put another point accross "[c" == array of chars , and "(Ti)V" is
func with args (this,int) returning Void ...

This is the internal way of doing "new char[length]";

This removes the icky array headers and frees you from all the regular
bound checking issues IL arrays have ...

Usually we keep doing 'buf++' because bound checking does not matter,
and we get clear segfaults for errors instead of unexplainable behaviour ;-)
