 marshal opaque IntPtrs into strings.
 The runtime really should do this marshaling automatically; this is an ugly
 bit of wrapping code.
 We tried using the 'ref' keyword which actually caused the program to freeze.

+Mono (or .NET) doenot have a way to know how many strings are returned
+(this is extra data you get on the n_docs variable as a side-effect).
+The C API just happens to be hard to wrap in that incarnation.
