No, my concern is that it's creating a dummy codec object temporarily
on the stack just by copying some fields and calling the ops with it.
(And actually the current code may work wrongly because lack of
zero-clear of the object.)

IMO, a cleaner way would be to define the ops passed with both
controller and codec objects as arguments, and pass NULL codec here.
