[Pyro-developers] Wrapping C and C++ code

I've noted that most of the wrapping that seems to be used is
based on SWIG.  Has any thought been given to using boost.python
for the C++ or pyrex for the C interfaces?  Just curious. The
SWIG interfaces are a quick initial implementation however suffer
from weakness when it comes to python reference counting or
acting like first class python objects.
