It occurred to me that the problems with Bison were that it was GPL, not
LGPL, and that it copied portions of itself into the output. As long as
wraptypes doesn't do that, I don't have a problem with it - I really
wouldn't want to release Python bindings that were effectively under an
LGPL license, though. (Though presumably we could build releases using
ctypeslib if that was thought to be a concern).
