Still hoping ;-) The discussion seemed to stop without reaching a
conclusion last time. At least, I still don't think I fully understand
why the current newForeignPtr is not implementable without concurrency,
given that a form of context switching must already exist in order to
implement foreign import that re-enters Haskell.
Anyway, it's not that big a deal. I'll hopefully get round to making
the change soon.
