A direct "C" mechanism definitely has usefulness. I've seen folks on the
side (designers) gravitate to this much more easily than writing such in
PLI/VPI For a "quick" model its really useful, access would be either
port or process/task based.

Keeping it modular and not allow passing of anything that is not allowed in
standard VHDL (i.e. no pointers and such) helps keep it somewhat 'safe'.
and would avoid language bloat.
