/*
   CObjects are marked Pending Deprecation as of Python 2.7.
   The full schedule for 2.x is as follows:
     - CObjects are marked Pending Deprecation in Python 2.7.
     - CObjects will be marked Deprecated in Python 2.8
       (if there is one).
     - CObjects will be removed in Python 2.9 (if there is one).

   Additionally, for the Python 3.x series:
     - CObjects were marked Deprecated in Python 3.1.
     - CObjects will be removed in Python 3.2.

   You should switch all use of CObjects to capsules.  Capsules
   have a safer and more consistent API.  For more information,
   see Include/pycapsule.h, or read the "Capsules" topic in
   the "Python/C API Reference Manual".

   Python 2.7 no longer uses CObjects itself; all objects which
   were formerly CObjects are now capsules.  Note that this change
   does not by itself break binary compatibility with extensions
   built for previous versions of Python--PyCObject_AsVoidPtr()
   has been changed to also understand capsules.

/* original file header comment follows: */

/* C objects to be exported from one extension module to another.
 
   C objects 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.
