That's the idea, of course. What I'm wondering is whether there are
many (more) known things that you currently _can't do_ in Python, no
matter how clunky and disgusting you're willing to make the code. I
understand fairly well the scope of adding an extra Python layer do do
syntax like you've described, and that is definitely going in the
proposal. However, if the actual SWIG-level bindings have to be fixed
in multiple non-trivial ways before I can even start on that, it's going
to limit the amount of time I can spend actually 'pythonificating'.
Apologies if I wasn't clear on that.
