Hey, just thought I'd mention something which concerns me a little:

It seems to me that this could be done in a more typesafe way, perhaps
using a header structure which stores information common to all
handlers, and has a type field so you can safely cast to the
appropriate type if necessary. Something like the ModifierData system
is what I have in mind (DNA_modifier_types.h).

Just my two cents, mainly because large amounts of void* make me
uncomfortable :-)
