[bitc-dev] Raw pointers (aka void*)

I am thinking about how JIT compilers, virtual machines, and memory
managers (for example garbage collector) can be implemented in BitC.
I have not found construct that allows raw pointer manipulation or
primitives for conversion from number to pointer and back. I think
general-purpose system programming language should allow raw access to
the memory. IO device drivers also might need to have ability to work
with raw memory. Maybe I have missed something obvious.
