Alexander is questioning why the library is designed the way it is.
I'm saying that the answer is pretty obvious from the  (albeit

Woah, steady :) To be clear there is no "ganging up" going on here.
I'm entirely happy with this library, and most probably have cause to
use it. I'll withold feedback until I've actually used it though,

In fact I agree with Joshua that Fleece's approach is probably quite a
bit simpler and more portable than the FFI alternative.
