Thanks for the link Thomas.  Since there is already interest in adding arithmetic to ctypes, perhaps that is an option.  One question that raises in my mind, though, is should only 'long double' unpack to a ctype in that case?  Or should all items unpack to ctypes now?  It seems to me that you would want everything to unpack to types from the same family (e.g. Python builtins or ctypes).  This seems conceptually cleaner and the interoperability between types in the same "family" are (or can be in the case of modifying ctypes) more clearly defined.
