OK, that's more or less what I thought.  Just to make sure I'm clear,
when you're marking your smob, you just mark anything the
SCM_SMOB_DATA "struct" contains that's also a SCM, right?  You don't
need to mark the object itself since you're already in a mark call for
that object, and you can return either an object you also want marked
