Dear all,

I'm interested in using sextractor purely in python. For the last couple of years I have been calling sextractor from python and reading in the resulting catalogue. I wonder if people have wrapped sextractor's c-code with cython. 
It would be great if sextractor worked on numpy arrays (or pyfits objects) and that you could do things individually (like the background map and so on). Any ideas?

cheers
   Wolfgang
