I like this idea! Actually the idea of having primitives for allocating and
filling data and then getting read-only access to it is a good one in
general.  I haven't worked with anything like this before, so perhaps the
real value of it won't be apparent without some experience.

This sort of thing won't work on systems with virtually indexed caches,
at least not without inserting explicit flushes.  I don't know whether
virtually indexed caches still exist in the wild.
