Based on discussions on the wiki it seems that FFI is clearly out of
scope of the standard because everyone does it differently. That said,
it is important enough to be discussed in the first place.
Is the role of the standard simply to recognize it's importance and
rationale for not finding a common api? Or is the lack of a common api
simply a reflection of the fact that there is not one?
Also the whole FFI topic reveals the need for interop... is it the
role of the standard to comment on things like another form of interop
instead like JSON for example?
Apologies, just trying to understand the nature and mechanics of what
works how and where.
