Yes.  That might actually be all OK - if the pointer really is fine.  I
might have been getting caught in knots. 

Could this be a pointer into an array?  If so then we are doing the
right thing already, using the new pytalloc stuff that holds a distinct
memory context, and just need to use pytalloc_get_ptr() and trust that
it is the right type.
