Is this for a "political" reason (this 'side effect' of the compiler should not be
exposed to the casual user or can this hack lead to an unsafety of some kind ?

Does this include a Dynlink module for native code ? ( or is such a module
incompatible with the design of the compiler or with type safety ? )
