as I can tell there's no tp_unicode slot in PyObject_HEAD_INIT.

So I'm not sure how to add the C equivalent of a __unicode__ to the
Wrappertype and XaqWrappertype PyExtensionClasses. It would probably
have to do a lookup for a __unicode__ method on the wrapped instance,
call it if it exists and otherwise call its own __str__ - essentially
duplicating the logic of the string type.

My C-fu is too weak to attempt this. The workaround is to call
