Robin Sommer commented on BIT-1141:

How ugly would it be (or would it even work) to have an interface to change Val's internal values (e.g. Val::val.uint_val) so a new Val doesn't have to be created to update fields in a fa_file record? 

Not sure that would be safe. I believe the Val can end up being shared with other locations which wouldn't expect it to change. Say if somebody assigned the current value to somewhere else, then when it would later be changed under the hood it would show up there too.
