That's what I thought too. But when I try passing it directly as if it
were a constant:

GCS_RGB = cglib.kCGColorSpaceGenericRGB
cs = cglib.CGColorSpaceCreateWithName(GCS_RGB)

I get a segfault too. ctypes said kCGColorSpaceGenericRGB was a
function pointer, so I thought maybe I needed to call it to get the
value (not very good reasoning, I know).
