Okay, so the export mechanism can be used as a grade-independent method of 
calling Mercury closures from C.

One question though, what about type classes? I am currently calling
polymorphically typed predicates from C by passing an explicit type_info
and everything works very nicely. However the reference manual does not
appear to describe how to call an exported Mercury function that is
polymorphically typed with type class constraints.

Presumably passing a method dictionary?
