Ah, I see.  I was speaking of [DllImport("__Internal")], not
[MethodImpl(MethodImplOptions.InternalCall)].  It should be noted that
the former follows the regular P/Invoke rules, at the cost of
performance (since marshaling occurs).  The latter is faster, but
requires that you marshal things yourself.
