If dummy is NULL, a pending exception has been set (with PyErr_SetString
or another similar function). If you simply ignore this, your function
will return a valid object, but PyErr_Occurred() returns True. This is
not correct and will fail in subtle ways (like with gc.collect()); in
debug mode, a message "XXX undetected error" is printed.
You must either clear the exception, or return NULL from your function.
