In this case, I disagree. The function in question is used in 2 places
in the C++ code, neither of which is a good candidate for
customization. The only argument for porting this function in the
first place is that it happened to live in the same file as some other
stuff (which _did_ make sense to port). That doesn't sound like a very
good argument to me.
To me it sounds like a Scheme interface to
Pointer_group_interface::find_grob is needed here.
Oh, ok, that's a completely different viewpoint.

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.
Patches are highly apprechiated ;-)
... or any hints how to proceed on that issue.
