It depends how it is used in the C API. Some possibilities:
- It's used just once or twice as a way to provide input parameters to a
function. Maybe you can avoid wrapping the function, or can reimplement
- It's used in API that is not really public anyway. Maybe you can
ignore it.
- It's used lots, meaning that there's probably already
initialization/copy/free functions. It should probably be a real
registered boxed-type in the C API.
