Put and Get are not part of modeswitch ISOIO, because they're not 
intrinsics and are instead provided by the ISO7185 unit which is only 
used for modeswitch ISO. As that unit also contains functionality that's 
not covered by the ISOIO modeswitch (some types, Round functions) it's 
not used for that modeswitch, but only together with the mode.
