Given that when converting from C++ to Python, you only have a C++
type to work with and no Python type, there really can only be a
single way to do the conversion anyhow. Given a to-python converter
for a given C++ type, there's no criterion by which to say, "this
converter doesn't match; try another"... unless of course you inspect
the value of the C++ object, but I don't allow that.
