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).

cheers,

David
