OK, could you a little bit outline what is the difference in your example
(http://rebol.org/userlist/archive/504/457.html ), where you use struct!
datatype and string being its first element to get pointer into rebol word,
and sending the string to the library directly? We were successfull in
modifying Rebol data in-place by sending the string directly, without the
trick with using structure. What is the difference please?

components, compiler, yeah yeah :-))
