I don't know about Dirk (and I *do* recommend the book), but I still find
myself scouring the various XS-related POD files and I still don't know what
the magic incantations of ENTER/LEAVE/FREETMPS and the like do, nor why they
make my code work sometimes but not others.
Now to be fair, I was writing Parrot::Embed and P5NCI, which may be horribly
bad ideas, but still.
