It's in the SWIG manual now, which is why I tried it...

I've done this.

I now have a typemap which matches the appropriate calls from Python,
but the PyObject pointers I get from PyList_GetItem aren't instances
according to PyInstance_Check.  If I ignore that, then I get a SEGV.
So currently I'm a bit stumped what to try.

But I think this is a lesser issue - the vector<string> problem was
blocking creation of phrase queries (except via the QueryParser)
whereas this one can more easily be worked around.

Incidentally, any idea why the wrapping for vector<Query> looks for
a Python sequence while the vector<string> case looks for a Python
list?  I've tried using a list instead for vector<Query> but it
doesn't seem to make a difference at all (perhaps a list is also
a sequence?  I've failed to find detailed documentation for
PySequence_Check, etc...)
