// Facilities for dealing with types which always manage Python
// objects. Some examples are object, list, str, et. al. Different
// to_python/from_python conversion rules apply here because in
// contrast to other types which are typically embedded inside a
// Python object, these are wrapped around a Python object. For most
// object managers T, a C++ non-const T reference argument does not
// imply the existence of a T lvalue embedded in the corresponding
// Python argument, since mutating member functions on T actually only
// modify the held Python object.
//
// handle<T> is an object manager, though strictly speaking it should
// not be. In other words, even though mutating member functions of
// hanlde<T> actually modify the handle<T> and not the T object,
// handle<T>& arguments of wrapped functions will bind to "rvalues"
// wrapping the actual Python argument, just as with other object
// manager classes. Making an exception for handle<T> is simply not
// worth the trouble.
//
// borrowed<T> cv* is an object manager so that we can use the general
// to_python mechanisms to convert raw Python object pointers to
// python, without the usual semantic problems of using raw pointers.


// Object Manager Concept requirements:
//
//    T is an Object Manager
//    p is a PyObject*
//    x is a T
//
//    * object_manager_traits<T>::is_specialized == true
//
//    * T(detail::borrowed_reference(p))
//        Manages p without checking its type
//
//    * get_managed_object(x, boost::python::tag)
//        Convertible to PyObject*
//
// Additional requirements if T can be converted from_python:
//
//    * T(object_manager_traits<T>::adopt(p))
//        steals a reference to p, or throws a TypeError exception if
//        p doesn't have an appropriate type. May assume p is non-null
//
//    * X::check(p)
//        convertible to bool. True iff T(X::construct(p)) will not
//        throw.

// Forward declarations
