/* Here is a macro that will define typemaps for passing C pointers indirectly.
  
   TYPEMAP_POINTER_INPUT_OUTPUT(PTRTYPE, SCM_TYPE)

   Supported calling conventions (in this example, PTRTYPE is int *):

   func(int **INPUT)

       Scheme wrapper will take one argument, a wrapped C pointer.
       The address of a variable containing this pointer will be
       passed to the function.

   func(int **INPUT_CONSUMED)

       Likewise, but mark the pointer object as not garbage
       collectable.

   func(int **INPUT_DESTROYED)

       Likewise, but mark the pointer object as destroyed.
       
   func(int **OUTPUT)

       Scheme wrapper will take no arguments.  The address of an int *
       variable will be passed to the function.  The function is
       expected to modify the variable; its value is wrapped and
       becomes an extra return value.  (See the documentation on how
       to deal with multiple values.)
   
   func(int **OUTPUT_NONCOLLECTABLE)

       Likewise, but make the pointer object not garbage collectable.
   
   func(int **BOTH)
   func(int **INOUT)

       This annotation combines INPUT and OUTPUT.
