OK, I think I'm going to go ahead with this.

OK (eventually ;-))

Yes, good idea (also "eventually ;-)").

While I'm accumulating TODO items in this thread, every library which
gets split out needs a careful review before it should be declared
A[PBI] stable. I'm thinking at least:

      * Consistent error handling (return -1 + setting errno=EFOO)
      * Correct types
      * Const correctness
      * General interface sanity check

Anything else?
