Not at all! From explanations from Paul Guyot, the interface that is writte=
in NewtonScript resides in one memory area while the driver which is writte=
in C++ resides in the C++ areas, and from what I understood, it's somehow
tricky to try to establish communication between the 2 areas. It's doable,
but I don't think it's that easy...

dangling pointer n.: [common] A reference that doesn't actually lead
anywhere (in C and some other languages, a pointer that doesn't actually
point at anything valid). Usually this happens because it formerly pointed
to something that has moved or disappeared. Used as jargon in a
generalization of its techspeak meaning; for example, a local phone number
for a person who has since moved to the other coast is a dangling pointer.
