I think that with the last iteration we eliminated almost all "unsafe" uses of
contiguous. That is, it should no longer be possible to have something
declared as a contiguous be non-contiguous at runtime. For arguments, a copy
is made if needed. Pointers can only be pointed to
"compile-time-contiguous" (aka always-contiguous unless J3 renamed my
proposal at the last meeting). I think this is a good balance between
felxibility and safety.
