I have previously created a wrapper for python around boost::ublas vector.
Basically it does (in pseudocode):
if (obj is a vector):
return a copy
elif (obj has __len__):
elif (obj has __iter__):
copy_iter_to_new_temp_container (in this case, we use std::vector with
return new vector from temp container
