Yes, this is exactly right.

I've already got a few tweaks I'd like to make to "p-b-i-i-f-r", but I
don't want to make them dependent on my "abstract bindings work". The
two need to be independent, so that we can merge my bugfixes to trunk
without merging the experimental abstract bindings.

Is "python-memory-management" a good name? That describes what's on
the branch -- the memory management code, plus any fixes that need to
be made.
