So does this need to be applied after patches 1 and 2 from before?

> This patch completely deletes ScriptInterpreterObject, and instead coverts ScriptInterpreter and ScriptInterpreterPython to use objects in StructuredData instead. To support this, a new category of StructuredData object is created, a "Generic" category which holds a void*. In PythonDataObjects, we then create a subclass of StructuredData::Generic called StructuredPythonObject whose job is just to Addref and Decref the void* on construction and destruction.
> All methods in ScriptInterpreterPython now return StructuredData objects instead of PythonDictionary, PythonList, etc. To support this, the various PythonDataObject classes contain methods to convert them the corresponding StructuredData types. So the Python methods behave as normal, but instead of returning a PythonObject directly, they just convert first.
