i'm confused how the _UC_* interface can be considered "public".
the whole point of them being _* is that they're private to the
implementation, and depending on them is wrong.

i'm not sure where i stand on this issue, but if this is to be
used in 3rd party code we should publish definitions that do
not start with "_".
