I've added a section on unsafe/safe and a "Random Questions" section which 
will hopefully make it easier to quickly add useful things that spring to 
mind for anyone who doesn't want to do re-structuring - at the moment it 
just has the answer to "Are FunPtr's stable?"

Logic empowers us and Love gives us purpose.
Yet still phantoms restless for eras long past,
congealed in the present in unthought forms,
strive mightily unseen to destroy us.
