 Note that callbacks of a variadic function type are not supported.

 Be careful when writing the Python callback function: if it returns an
 object of the wrong type, or more generally raises an exception, then
 ``ffi.errno``: the value of ``errno`` received from the most recent C call
 in this thread, and passed to the following C call, is available via

Tip: Use camelCasing e.g. ProjME to search for
Tip: Filter by extension type e.g. /repo .js to search for all .js files in the /repo directory.
Tip: Separate your search with spaces e.g. /ssh pom.xml to search for src/ssh/pom.xml.
