The appended patch adds const to all base function parameters that are "in"
parameters. The parameters without const are therefore "out". The exception
to this rule are the handles. In some functions the handles are "in"
parameters and not changed to the callers point of view but still do not
have const. This is because they might be changed internally (depending on
the way those handles are implemented :-).

In addition, I've started to add comments to all base functions. A lot of
the function names are self explanatory, but I think some actually did
profit of being explained :-)
