from a quick look at the API documentation I don't see any reason why
you shouldn't be able to interface to this library using the Racket FFI.

If the library was actually C++ instead of C there could be some
pitfalls, but the API documentation doesn't indicate that's the case.


When C++ is your hammer, every problem looks like your thumb.
