Ya, hmm, well, get() (and get_pointer()) there in the proposal is a mistake
(or else the pointer interface is.. clearly both shouldn't coexist)

FWIW, I wrote the 2 proposals in a high rush over one weekend 'cause I had
no idea there was a dateline until Thorstten told me about it, just a few
days earlier..
There were a couple of loose ends in both of them... as you can see.
