Boost :

The thing is: I was really happy with boost.python, I never really liked
swig because in my hands it
never was a stable product. However after a lot of time it did what I
wanted. And now I use boost.python,
and my C++ - Python interface code is under my control again, which I prefer
a lot over the "magic" swig does.
So far these default parameter stuff is the only thing I used with swig but
can't do with boost.python
the way I would like to. It's not a major feature, and because I am very new
to boost.python, I don't
know if other (missing) features are perhaps a lot more important to
implement first.
It could also be that everyone here has seen boost.python grow into what it
is now
and is very happy with it! I can imagine that!

Anyway, great piece of software, very useful for me.
