OK, well the response was crickets chirping in the nightime. https://github.com/oracle/graal/issues/3314

Thanks for creating the issue. The questions in the slack aren't as pro-actively responded to as github issue. In my experience those are handled pretty well

I think it is a long haul for them to implement the full foreign function pathway but I know it performs really well and if they did it could change the nature of graal native in some ways as it directly counteracts the 'closed world' assumptions that a lot of the system was built around. It will be really interesting to see their response.

Seems unlikely to be considered seriously before foreign linker stuff moves out of incubator status

I agree completely; I am sort of just rattling cages at this point with no expectations. Adding a vote for it to be considered especially when in earlier conversations on that channel a few of the higher level graalvm people said they aren't familiar with the foreign API I think is a smart move for a few reasons.
