Although we have various service macro in outfuncs.c and readfuncs.c,
it is not a big burden for extension authors to write equivalent code,
except for string and bitmap. On the other hands, string needs _outToken,
bitmap needs _outBitmap. It is not good idea to suggest extensions to
have copy & paste code with no clear reason.
