I don't? I'm not at all clear about that. UNlike Java, the C
bindings do not specify the interface between the glue layer and the
mechanisms, so it seems like that interface needs to be glue layer
specific in some way.
But I never stopped to question the assumption that mechanism
implementations were bound to at most one glue layer.
