I had a problem with the following code:
(ByteArray new: 50)
Because on my fresh gentoo linux, I did not have libffi installed. That leads
me to my question: why is ffi used for the above code? I thougt 'ffi' stands
for 'foreign function interface', and is slow and should be avoided. Why does
something 'simple' like a ByteArray need ffi?
