The approach taken in 1.7 is the opposite of now. All the binds are C
functions, and some C functions are stubs that call the appropriate tcl
function (provided by the tcl module).

Yeah, it would be pretty messy to change in 1.6. Timers are the same way.
We do need more programmers, especially on the 1.7 project :)
Not only more programmers, but some input on how things should be done. We want
to make 1.7 very friendly and easy to write scripts/modules for. For instance,
instead of all that code for setting an XTRA key, you can just say:
user_set_setting(user, "channel or NULL for globals", "settingname", value);

I've never used XTRA from a module, so I'm not sure, but looking at the code,
maybe the problem comes up when you're deleting it? To delete it, you have to
call user_set again with pXtraKey->data = NULL. Then the xtra_set() function in
the core will free the old data.
Your code for setting the data seems fine. Have you looked at core dumps to see
exactly what is crashing?
