I want the bitwise ops.  Although we could do a bitfield operator function:

    check_bitfield(number, number_bit_mask), ala:

I'd still prefer '&' though :)

Well, I think the patch you sent me was incomplete.  It WAS broken, eudora
put in random line breaks, but I think it may have been missing some too...

<    head = buffer_truncate(buff, size);
<    tail = buffer_tail(buff, size+1);


   head = buffer_truncate(buff, size);
   tail = (| buffer_tail(buff, size+1) |) || `[];

(just a suggestion)
