True. Yet, first step would be just to have a nicer accessor. Second
step is to break the ABI by hiding _Control()

I'll think about it. This one is a bit harder, as more code needs to
be changed in an non automatic way. But for sure, we could rethink it.
Do we agree that I should remap *_Control() as a first step?
Eventually an other RFC will follow.
Thanks for your time,
