Did I not get any help?  Sadly, there was so much bickering that it was hard to tell.  I think yours was the reply that I had in mind to revisit.  What I will do now, absent unforeseen time pressure, is put the offending calls on hold until 1.2 and then add them to the package.  Another one that I don't think I've mentioned here is color mapping to create pseudo colored images.  That will need some C support to run at decent speed, at least for what I have in mind.

So, even if Bill did not help me a lot, and even if it does not help
him neither, I finally did it.
you can now test FFI calls with many arguments in latest Pharo 1.2 12172
The package is at

This also give anybody a chance to load Smallapack packages - if
interested in debugging at machine code level ;)
