Access to ExternalObjectsArray from plugin

Is there a mechanism for accessing objects in the
ExternalObjectsArray from a plugin? For some reason, I thought that
there was, but I can't find it in the code (image or vm) or in the
various list archives.
I was hoping to have a QuickTime callback function (i.e. a function I
passed into QuickTime) copy data directly into a Squeak ByteArray,
which was to have been looked up by its index in the
ExternalObjectsArray. Instead it looks like I'll have to copy it
into an ExternalData, and copy it again into a Squeak ByteArray. Is
It seems trivial to expose access to the ExternalObjectsArray via the
interpreterProxy, and I can't think of any good reason not to. Can you?
Can anyone suggest a solution that doesn't involve hacking the VM
(writing plugin code is fine)?
