Algecan2 is supposed to have a clear interface, isn't it ? So you only
have one wrapper per major version. This is done in other packages as
well. And it is clearer that this is for algecan 2.x and not for
algecan 1.x.

It wasn't the case some time ago. But you still can do what I mean.
I see that you can't register a new solver in OO on the fly and use
your wrappers. Why didn't you make __solverPaths__ directly a
dictionary that you populate then ? This way, you always have one
__solverPaths__ that is not different accross modules, as it could be
expected to be.

Of course ;) but you should try to reuse your code at the beginning as well ;)
