Just FYI, this doesnt work if MyOwnObject happens to be a C++ object that
derives from a PyObject, and also has virtual methods.
In that case, you _must_ declare the function as taking a PyObject *, and
perform the cast Fredrik tries to avoid - the cast actually adjusts the
pointer generally by the size of the vtable pointer.
