I fail to see the point.  You don't need to pass the data, only a
pointer to the data.  Any time you set the callback, you can set
the callback-arg.  When the callback is called it is given the arg;
if the arg was a pointer you can deref to get the data... which could
have been manipulated as needed in the interim.

Using the ex_data facility is not needed.
