[PyQt] SIP and void* handling

I have a wrapped C++ class with a function that returns a void*.
Also, I have a Python class that inherits from the wrapped C++ class and
overrides the function that returns a void*.
Lastly, I have C++ code that ends up calling the Python subclass's void*
function. When this happens, however, I'm getting this error:
TypeError: invalid result from MyDataTable.GetValueAsCustom(), an integer
This appears to be because the Python class (MyDataTable) is getting
returned as the void*, not a sip.voidptr. How do I get a sip.voidptr to
One additional caveat, the C++ code expects to delete the void* object, so
it needs to take ownership of it as well.
