An agreeable beer-induced fantasy. But we have good beer in New  
Zealand, too.
In Terminal.app, paste the following command:
cd Desktop;echo "#include <Carbon/Carbon.h>" > test.h;gcc test.h -E -P  
 > CarbonAPI.txt

After pressing return you should see on your Desktop a text file that  
makes interesting, but arduous, reading.

Prediction:
Bernie will figure out how to transfer the relevant parts of  
CarbonAPI.txt to FBtoC's symbol table.
