Yeah, it really should but it's kind of tricky for the reads as we're
returning errors in band and we could have 32 bit registers (I'm
guessing the platform versions already do) so we lose.  :/  Not sure
what the best thing to do there is, changing to return the errors out of
band for reads is more painful than I care to contemplate.
