Like I said, if you know that it's 64K bytes, then just use malloc
with the number.  It would be nice to just create new types manually,
given a size and an alignment, but libffi doesn't allow that, and
creating such huge type descriptors is going to be a problem.

          ((lambda (x) (x x)) (lambda (x) (x x)))          Eli Barzilay:
