I for one think that FFI should be readily available, if not part of
a "base product" then as a reliably loadable package. I also think that
the 64-bit patches need to be applied to it real soon now, since 64-bit
Unix, Windows and OS X are becoming rather commonplace. So I'll probably
be nagging you about this on vm-dev sometime soon if you are at all
sympathetic to the cause ;)
