Yes.  At least for now - I've not forgotten your ideas about a more
direct API.  But for that I want to wait until:

 a) all architectures actually use this scheme
 b) find a user that cares enough about performance to bother with a
    direct get/put scheme vs the copy calling conventons.

Thanks for fixing it.
