    That seems to be reasonable. And if we're aliasing, or shadowing, or casting
    function pointers to something else, or using a union to overlay it, that's
    just a time bomb waiting to explode. At the very least, such code should
    require a large "Danger! Here be large and nasty dragons!" marker.
