Exactly.  It uses the existing sip mechanisms in all cases, so for
example Python ints use PyInt_FromLong and PyInt_AsLong, while classes
known to sip via either class, struct or mapped type declarations all
work as you'd expect.

This works recursively, too, so a std::list<std::vector<QWidget> >
should be handled OK.
