Nothing like finding a working solution.......ahh, the simple things in

I really want to spend the time to find out where the C++ interfaces
are generated via cmake/make, then I guess we could just patch this
once and for all and export these key missing interfaces.......is this
sort of thing *well* documented somewhere?

It almost seems like the char (byte) level interface to the array object
was left out because char arrays are sort of 'special' in a string language
like tcl; maybe exporting such an interface is considered kind of, uh,
dangerous. Who knows. In any case, it's useful.
