That sounds very interesting. Did this project ever make it to the public? 
Here in my group we use Mathematica a _lot_ and I'm pushing python hard for 
the numerical parts (as a replacement for matlab, trying to only write 
C/Fortran when absolutely necessary). But being able to have the python and 
mathematica parts talk would be great. Could you provide a bit more info on 
this?

Since it's a bit off the original thread topic, feel free to either respond 
privately or start a new thread.

Cheers,
