To me it sounds like a Scheme interface to
Pointer_group_interface::find_grob is needed here.

I think being able to move the _entire_ chunk of functionality to Scheme
makes _excellent_ sense since it means we arrive at a piece of
functionality that can serve as a template for _user_ written
functionality without requiring recompilation.

A chunk of Scheme code with "just" one or two semi-trivial C++ functions
required to complete it is useless for that purpose.
