didn't intend to doubt the latter.  But I guess i need to
refresh/improve my knowledge of ootypes.

indeed, the one thing i did not grep for but searched on the 
index page :) ... probably those should be combined into one document 
and referenced from the index page.   Without that it's hard
to discover them - apart from the fact that the index page got
a bit less useful with all the assorted accumulated links
these days.  Side question: you apparently wrote much of the
ctypes-integration doc in Mallorca - is it still somewhat 
up-to-date after Dallas/Pycon?
