I don't consider GIMAPI a Rexx API; it's Rexx-hostile.  It requires
that the caller supply pointers in argument blocks, and pointers are
not a capability of Rexx.  So an interface to the interface is

ICSF did far better with its API -- its arguments are Rexx-friendly
without being Rexx-peculiar.  It's a pity that the designers of GIMAPI
