I have mixed feelings here.  On one hand, it is nice to avoid a big
copy in some cases (rare cases really).  But on the other hand I am
not fond of interfaces that temporarily modify data, even if they
change it back later, and the pitfalls of such an approach are more of
a problem as threading comes into the picture (and we are currently in
the midst of threading OVS).

What do you think?
