Thanks for your guidance. I'm not sure exactly what to add to the
request tracker at this time. Once I play with your suggestions and
the library a little more maybe I will know.

FYI - I/We have already wrapped the FLTK gui with SWIG and it
works OK. Then I learned about the BPL and subclassing C++
classes within Python is pretty darn amazing. Your function
overloading is much cleaner too. So, I'm prototyping a wrapper
with BPL to see what it's like.

I don't have the link right here, but long term I'm going to look into
generating the wrapper from gcc-xml output. GCC-xml is a
modified version of gcc that spits out an XML representation of the
C++ program. Wouldn't that be something?
