Comment(by iraikov):

 I've created a new release of byte-blob (1.17) that exports byte-
 blob->blob and have updated the documentation. Let me know if this works
 for you.

 Replying to [ticket:1190 retroj]:
 > I need to pass a byte-blob to a foreign function, and found that foreign
 types scheme-pointer and blob-pointer both gave pointers to the object
 header rather than the blob contents.  Looking into the source of the
 byte-blob egg, I found byte-blob-object and its alias byte-blob->blob.
 byte-blob-object is exported by the egg and byte-blob->blob is not
 exported.  I used byte-blob-object to do what I needed to do, however
 neither of these procedures are mentioned in the documentation on Eggs
 Unlimited or the chickidee api reference, so I suspect something is
 unfinished here.  Please advise!  Thank you.
