So I'm back working on this now -- trying to register custom covnersions
for my any-like object.

Thanks for the links. I feel like I have a good general understanding
of what needs doing. The problem is I don't know how to tell whether
the PyObject * that is passed to convertible() is pointing to (a wrapper
of) my any-like object, and if it is, how to get it out.
I think this is what you were referring to when you said that the bigger
issue is that I don't have the Python type object associated with my
any-like class at compile time, correct?
If anybody has any hints for doing that, I'd greatly appreciate it.
