It's sort of black magic, and it's not very convenient unless you  
really know what you're doing (type signatures, etc.).  It's also not  
as complete as ctypes is with regard to pointers to things (i.e.  
variable length arrays), because PyObjC doesn't offer that  
abstraction yet.  When the new scanner stuff is prime time, it'll get  
some air-time (indirectly).

That said, for simple functions with simple arguments and return  
values, it's great if you understand the Objective-C type signatures  
involved :)
