Sounds pretty ambitious! Let me know how it works out.

This is an issue we are interested in resolving, and in fact we discussed it
extensively here in Toronto at the boost meeting. Unfortunately, I don't
have a solution for you at this time, but you can probably find the answer
by preprocessing the example code and grepping for "boost/".

I forsee no py_cpp specific problems (but potentially many others ;->).
