wraptypes is a ctypes code generator for Python, much like ctypeslib.
It's useful for automatically generating Python bindings for
Subversion. It is licensed under the LGPL but it is only used by the
build system to generate code, and is entirely separate from the
ctypes Python bindings.

Before we merge the ctypes Python bindings to trunk, we will need to
find a home for my patched version of wraptypes. Perhaps we can
consult with the pyglet folks and see if they would be interested in
collaborating on this, and creating a project specifically for

For now, I am just following pyglet's example: I've imported wraptypes
as a subdirectory in our repository. This works great for now, but it
might not be the best long term solution -- it's likely that wraptypes
would receive more attention if we created a separate project for it.
