[gambit-list] Fast conversion of vectors?

Hi, I wonder:

Is there a way to "cast" a u32vector to a u8vector (except for
creating a new one and writing to this)?

The reason I would like to do this is that u8vectors seems to be the
fastest way to write to disk; read-subu8vector and write-subu8vector.

I could off course do this in C using the FFI, but I am not sure if
the garbage-collector might suprise me if I tried this?

Is there a canonical way?
