I think it should be ok. opts are about passing optional things in a
way that would be backward/forward compatible. Whether it's input
only, output only, or input/output is secondary. We haven't had a need
for output params yet, so this will be the first, but I think it fits
here just fine. Just document it in the struct definition clearly and
that's it. As for the mechanics, we might want to do OPTS_SET() macro,
that will set some fields only if the user provided enough memory to
fir that output parameter. That should work here pretty cleanly,
right?
