I'm not writing my patch that way; it would be too cumbersome for what 
is ostensibly an easy, light-weight API.  If you're going that route you 
might as well create a real PyTypeObject for the blob you're passing in.

But please feel free to contribute your own competing patch; you may 
start with my patch if you like.
