Magma is not broken. I thought from 30 minutes of testing that Magma
depended on WriteBarrier to operate, since I noticed it pulled in a copy
when I was grabbing it from the repository, and as I noted, WriteBarrier
does not work out-of-the-box on 3.8. If Magma can run without WriteBarrier,
then just ignore me. Magma itself at any rate seems to work great, although
I wish there were more documentation. :-)
