That's great! I will certainly try it out. But I am just wondering if one
can split inherited classes to different modules. For example, I have the
following tree of classes


                     ^ ^ ^
                    / | \ .... (there are about 15classes
                symbol | numeric inherited from the basic)

Is it possible to separate symbol, numeric, matrix, and other classes
in different extension modules?
In my current setup they all are (that is, their Boost.Python
wrapper classes) in one module and that makes it about 7000 lines of C++
code. And building it is really painful (my computer has 96MB RAM, g++
takes up to 180MB of memory to compile it).
So, it would be really great if this tree could be split into separate
modules. What do you think, is it feasible?
