yes. i recommend a compatible drop-in replacement for PowerDecoder.
(power_decoder.py) which is easier because the existing unit tests
can be used (like, all of them: TestIssuer as well as ISACaller).

this means a cffi interface to return PowerOp instances.

do not attempt to rewrite PowerOp, it is too fundamental.
a replacement class that does the exact same job, and is used
*only* by the new c-based decoder: not a problem.
