It is used to represent the GBoxed type, which wraps structures like
GdkRectangle or GtkColor (IIRC).
I can't think of a use outside of PyGObject, I think wrapped objects
are promoted to PyObjects when storing in things like a gtk.ListStore.
I suspect it is enumerated for completeness, you don't need to worry
