It might be a good time for you to learn f2py.   You could do this task 
quite easily with f2py in a couple of hours (depending on how difficult 
the library is).  Then, when you have completed the nice Python 
interface, you could submit the .py file (if any), the .pyf file and the 
Fortran code to SciPy.

Best regards,
