In this case I see no reason why you couldn't UNWRAP immediately and
WRAP at the end of the method so having the C side do it for you would
still work. Anyway, the wrap/unwrap methods could still be available
for special cases but I can't think of a time when automatically doing
it at the start and end of a method would ever limit you.
