Well, it's hard to say for sure when you haven't shown us either what
BVEC_NULL means or what _ebi_mtab_insert is doing with the value it gets
... but in fact a text Datum *is* a pointer, as is the Datum value for
any other pass-by-reference type. Datum isn't magic, it's only a
pointer-sized integer type. For anything bigger than that, the Datum
value is a pointer to some data somewhere else.
