Ah. Clearly, some of us did not know this was even possible. The only
pointer-like things I know of that aren't in C are pointer-to-member*, and
I can't imagine such things would be returned from a get_pointer()

Seems reasonable. I would prefer "raw" over "bare" (maybe because
the latter lends itself to abusive punnery, as if we don't already have
enough in the language!).
