I would not call ctypes not very powerful :) For sure you cannot do the
same way as swig does, but you could imagine some automatic scheme to
solve Sebastian's problem.
Typically, having a C wrapper automatically generated from the C++
headers, you could use the ctypes code generator, and you have something
almost automatic (with a bit some boilerplate code in python, maybe).
