well, it works well for me, moreover I got about 30% speed-up w.r.t the 
manually built version 4.4 for a simple problem I had at hand.

Conclusion: the wrappers seem to work also with the version 4.6; still 
there might be some extra functionality in 4.6 worth exposing, I will 
check it out when time permits.
