I just checked the code to ensure that it took a single pointer rather
than a double-pointer. I guess that I didn't verify the order :-)

Concept is valid, tho... the params do not necessarily require an

oop! Actually... this does require an ampersand:

    PyArg_ParseTuple(args, "O!", &PyString_Type, &s)

Don't want to pass the whole structure...

Well, regardless: I would much prefer to see the encoding passed as a
constant string, rather than having to shove the sucker into a variable
first, just so that I can insert a useless address-of operator.
