Now, I'm all for maximum performance, if possible. But that's not
(IMHO) the proper goal for this SRFI.
I am curious as to what you mean by 'this SRFI'. Do you think that
maximum performace is not a proper goal for any FFI SRFI? Or only
for the first one? Would you be less displeased by SRFI-50 if it
appeared after a JNI-style SRFI was in place?
I can understand wanting the first FFI SRFI being a safer, more general
one, perhaps based on JNI or Pika. This SRFI isn't that SRFI because
that isn't the type of FFI that Mike and I needed.
