There is no inherit reason to treat parameters this way.  We could  
instead do:

  'buf' => TypedViewRegion(char*, SymbolicRegion)

This binding can also be done lazily.  We just return a  
loc::MemRegionVal instead of a loc::SymbolVal (the latter should  
probably go away anyway).

Good observation.

I don't think so.

No.  void* is not sugar; it literally means treat this memory as  

In reality 'CFNumberGetValue' casts the void* to the appropriate  
pointer type and then does the store.  So the "effect" of the function  
call is to bind a new symbol to TypedViewRegion(someType,  
SymbolicRegion(...)), where the symbol will match the type of  
'someType'.  someType is argument dependent, but that should be  
captured in the "summary" for CFNumberGetValue.  While this summary  
will be hard-coded, in the future inter-procedural analysis should  
handle this automatically.

What this means is that the logic for that check needs to be updated  
to conform (should we adopt it) to the new design.
