This one update alone is worth the whole upgrade; while experimenting
with Harpy in several of my own personal compiler-related projects,
the necessity of ensureBufferSize was a major limitation in code
generation since I found it did nothing but litter the resulting asm and
distract from the actual code generation (considering I figure the
assembler could count the bytes a lot easier than I could.)

Great work on a great library. I have already installed it and
definitely will be putting it to use in the near future :)
