It does harm, look at the other patch: 5 lines of useless clutter out of
10 lines for the feature, using side data for that features has a 100%

And that is not only for the code here, it has the same consequences for
the applications that will use that API as well: they have to do the
same errors checks, they have to handle a type-pruned pointer, check the
size of the data, etc. This is a terrible API, there is no doubt that
people would prefer a single field.

By all means let us discuss all this. But if Paul maintains his veto, I
maintain mine. Please persuade Paul to behave like an adult of make good
on his trice-repeated promise of forking.
