That information is (and always has been) missing. offTi is always null. Maybe
Walter tried it and then thought it'd use too much memory.

Good luck with that. And I don't see any additional burden. It's already
burdened with "packing" the params on the stack. My proposal might actually
make it simpler for both compiler and user. Why burden the user with highly ABI
dependent struct or stack layouts? Is this assembler?
