[Haskell-cafe] MutableByteArray as a Ptr

"GHC's ByteArray and MutableByteArray primitive types are (im)mutable  
chunks of memory allocated on the Haskell heap, and pointers to these  
can be passed to foreign imported external functions provided they  
are marked as unsafe."

Does this mean I can pass a MutableByteArray as an argument to  
Storable's peek and poke?

     Thanks, Joel
