Rejigging NCI to use the ffcall library
Nick Glencross wondered about rejigging NCI, the parrot Native Call
Interface to use the ffcall library. In fact he went so far as to offer
up a proof of concept implementation. Apparently the ffcall approach
makes it much easier to write callbacks in PIR/PASM. Leo thought it
sounded like a useful thing to do, but licensing issues (ffcall is under
the GPL) meant that Parrot might have to stick with the current NCI
interface.

As was stated in the thread, the author of ffcall has agreed in the past
that he would be willing to release ffcall under LGPL for use with Perl6.
