The thread has meandered far from the original topic. Sorry for helping
it along. I'll start another thread once I put together what I've been
Just to be clear. I have nothing against Cython or Pyrex and even use
Pyrex in some of my own code. There are cases when it is an excellent
option. I don't think Nathan had said anything of the sort either.
I'll elaborate the problem I see later on and start a new thread about it.

Of course SWIG has its fair share of problems. Not the least the fact
that it changes so fast, so much -- at least in the past this was a problem.
