Yup, looks like you're right. Okay, I have no idea what I'm talking 
about. If CFFI works, that's great. ;-)

You can use ECL's C-INLINE form anywhere you could another Lisp form, so 
it may be that you could mix it in with CFFI at various strategic 
points. Of course, that would taint your CFFI code if the goal was to 
keep things portable.
