Hmm. OK, if I read that page correctly what I would need in order to
emulate a python sequence, mapping, or number is the ability to
register PySequenceMethods, PyMappingMethods, or PyNumberMethods
then? Maybe I'll dig around in the code and see if this is difficult
to add. It would certainly be useful for what I'm trying to do!
