/* Capsule objects let you wrap a C "void *" pointer in a Python
   object.  They're a way of passing data through the Python interpreter
   without creating your own custom type.

   Capsules are used for communication between extension modules.
   They provide a way for an extension module to export a C interface
   to other extension modules, so that extension modules can use the
   Python import mechanism to link to one another.
