Well, it surprises me. I thought the FFI preserved the distinction
between an object and a pointer to an object, otherwise why
distinguish between (:struct foo) and (:* (:struct foo)) as foreign
types? (Feel free to treat that as a rhetorical question. I know
you've got more important things to do.)
Thanks for the explanation!
