Hi David,

It was actually a deliberate decision of mine to not make it a machine
vector, because this was meant to be an optional feature. With a
machine vector one always ends up calling a dummy function on
platforms that do not wish to do anything here.

I'll be happy to change it over to a machine vector if you still
prefer, let me know.
