Paul, while reading ptarray.c I stumbled across this comment:

   * Get a pointer to nth point of a POINTARRAY.
   * You cannot safely cast this to a real POINT, due to memory alignment
   * constraints. Use getPoint*_p for that.
  uint8_t *
  getPoint_internal(const POINTARRAY *pa, int n)

Is that still the new serialization format ?
Or can we safely cast the return to a POINT ?
