[Pharo-users] uFFI ExternalAddress challenges

A rudimentary disphelper library "approach" is working OK, I succeeded to
create a connection to SQL Server through ADODB, too, which is rather cool,
since I've been looking for this functionality for too long.
I re-checked Pablo's pharo-com package and it is rather comprehensive - it
successfully creates COM servers and more. However, when trying to invoke
writing to COM server properties, as in:
wordObj propertyNamed: 'Visible' put: true.
the call fails with:
Primitive failed: primitive #integerAt:size:signed: in ExternalAddress
Problematic method uses a primitive
<primitive: 'primitiveFFIIntegerAt' module:'SqueakFFIPrims'>
which probably doesn't exist. Does anybody know about the purpose/intent and
the history of this primitive in 'SqueakFFIPrims'?
I think it would be a pitty that we leave Pablo's work unfinished.
