As I posted a few days ago, I think it would be a good idea if someone
(maybe me) wrote a header file that extension authors could bundle
with their extensions that would let them program to 2.3 memory APIs
and remain compatible all the way back to 1.5.2 (maybe further, if
that's easy).

Assuming I get this right, does this sound like a good solution?
