Ah, it seems I've misunderstood the scope of your FFI. I was imagining
something like Python ctypes or Lua alien, but JIT-aware and with
better support for native data structures. I didn't realise that (if I
understood you correctly) you've implemented a C parser as well. I'll
be watching the git repository with great interest.
