[Openmcl-devel] FFI questions

Couple o' questions about the FFI:

1.  Is there an FFI equivalent to the C sizeof operator?

2.  Is there a reason that the #_ reader macro does a foreign function  
lookup instead of just doing a case-sensitive symbol read?  If it were  
the latter then the #_ syntax could be used for case-sensitive  
keywords, and one could dispense with the <ANGLE>Bracket syntax, which  
I find fairly annoying.
