It sound like you are trying to do something different than Magnus, but
if what you are looking to scale floating or int data to byte size and
apply some character mapping, numarray (or Numeric) should be able
to do that very well. If that is all you want done, you might find
either to be overkill though (if you already wrote a C extension to
do so).
