For those as ignorant as I was, FFI does not here mean
Friendly File Interface
Fauna and Flora International
Family Firm Institute
Film Finances, Inc.
Financial Freedom Institute
Focus on the Family Institute
(all but the first from Google)
but Foreign Function Interface
(from the PHP FFI package).

Intriguing idea. I know that the Pygame folks, for example, are
experimenting with rewrapping the SDL (Simple Directmedia Library, the core
of Pygame) in ctypes.
