!!! Man, that was fast !!!

It's also strange. I've been in communication with Barry Scott, the CXX
maintainer about this technology. He expressed great interest, in part
because it seemed to make some things much easier. One big advantage over
what's available in CXX is that you don't have to do manual function
argument conversion. Another is that you can override your C++ class'
virtual functions in Python.

Cool! I've always thought that more applications should be scriptable. Now
that I've found Python, I know *what* they should be scripted with.

Maybe. Or maybe you were looking at the wrong part of the py_cpp code?
