Hi Holger -

I put together some header-only classes for this back when I used to do
a lot of C++ and numpy.  

They are part of the "esutil" package but you could actually just pull
them out and use them http://code.google.com/p/esutil/

The first is a template class for numpy arrays which can create and
import arrays and keeps track of the reference counts

http://code.google.com/p/esutil/source/browse/trunk/esutil/include/NumpyVector.h

The second is similar but for void* vectors so the type can be
determined at runtime

http://code.google.com/p/esutil/source/browse/trunk/esutil/include/NumpyVoidVector.h

There is also one for record arrays

http://code.google.com/p/esutil/source/browse/trunk/esutil/include/NumpyRecords.h

Hope these are useful or can give you some ideas.
