    8181Charname_to_ord is now an opcode: find_codepoint. The other methods that were provided are now part of PCT (and are probably not needed directly).'' 
     82== Eliminate Raw NCI ==                                                                                        
     83 
     84See #1549 
     85 
     86=== Description === 
     87 
     88It is no longer possible to create an NCI pmc without a corresponding NCI signature. 
     89 
     90=== Rationale === 
     91 
     92This functionality abused the NCI and went against the initial purpose - bridging the gap between parrot and C by translating calling conventions. 
     93 
     94This was error prone, generally leading to segfaults. 
     95 
     96=== Replacement === 
     97 
     98If you must have an equivalent, take a look at NativePCCMethod. Otherwise, enjoy the fact that your segfaults are now most likely "not implemented" errors.
