That is unlikely to be the best option these days -- it's simply too 
easy to make a type checking and or reference counting error.

If SWIG isn't your cup of tea, take a look at Cython or Ctypes -- lower 
level and more control, but still handle much of the book keeping for you.

The Cython team is working on better C++ support, though I don't know 
where they are at with that.
