Just saw this come up on PyPI:


Python Bindings Generator
PyBindGen is a Python module that is geared to generating C/C++ code
that binds a C/C++ library for Python. It does so without extensive use
of either C++ templates or C pre-processor macros. It has modular
handling of C/C++ types, and can be easily extended with Python plugins.
The generated code is almost as clean as what a human programmer would

Looks interesting, esp. for C++ wrappers that Pyrex can't do.
Also, it uses Waf (http://code.google.com/p/waf/) instead of distutils,
which looks like an interesting alternative.
