Actually, looking at OutBuffer, I think maybe the others are right.  Distinctly missing is any method that writes a pointer-containing type.

Sorry, but I think I switched sides :)  Outbuffer should not use void[].  And anything that is using OutBuffer for storing pointers is incorrectly written.

OutBuffer almost seems like outdated code anyways...  I wonder if dmdscript shouldn't be rewritten to use Appender.
