so are you saying that the actual shape of the python object depends
on how I generate it ? (am I just too much used to statically typed
languages to see the light here ?)

By the way, I just run into the 'Internals Documentation'
(http://www.boost.org/libs/python/doc/internals.html) which looks like
it has the potential to clarify a lot of these questions. Unfortunately
it seems to be very sparse as of now.
