I hadn’t seen this commit series until now but I like it!  :-)

I’ve always thought that smobs-as-structs would be a good thing, not
only to reduce code size and simplify procedure dispatch, but also to
remove arbitrary limits like on the number of smob types.

Keep up!

Ludo’, amazed by the pace at which things have been falling into place
over the last couple of weeks!
