I mention one of the GEM linkage problems as a different example of the 
same kind of problem.

Well, I have two problems with linking with GEM :

One is that the GEM ABI keeps changing (struct fields get added and 
deleted in header files needed to support GEM).

The other is that VisualC++'s ABI is not compatible with GCC's C++ ABI, 
and that makes it impossible to use [#to_pix] and [#from_pix] on Windows. 
It's both the name mangling and the exception-handling, but I got stuck at 
the name-mangling part.
