This is probably possible.  It would, unfortunately, be more than a
little hairy--and you'd still need to define wrappers for the
functions you'd be using.  My own feeling is that it's best to use
opaque data structures and have fuctions to manipulate them anyway,
within C.  Remember that functions can be inlined or even macro
defined, if you wish them to be...

But it may be useful--nothing stops you from writing it.  If folks can
use it, no doubt they will:-)  Good luck!

All words have not a single meaning but a swarm of them, like bees
around a hive.  And like that swarm, changing its position
ever-so-slightly with each wingbeat, the word's meanings change a little
with each use upon the tongue or the page.             --Maureen O'Brien
