Maybe to naive, but can't we somehow simulate PyCapsule on top of
CObject for 2.6?
And use PyCapsule everywhere in the code?
At least I seem to have thought about something like this (maybe the
+ ## PyCapsule (starting with 2.7) vs. PyCObject (up to 3.2)
+ ## As we need to support python 2.6, we can't use
+ ## When we'll get support fpr Python3 we'll have to emulate
+ ## PyCObject using PyCapsule and convert these functions to
+ ## use PyCapsule.
