The obvious thing would be to have data already there in memory. I am
working towards building more and more data as C "static const" data: all
numbers and strings are already like that. Some time ago I did experiments
on achieving the same with arbitrary data and results were mixed. In any
case it is not something as simple as writing one function and you are done:
this is what you pay for having absolutely relocatable data vs. loadable
memory images with fixed addresses.
