It also seems to draw some inspiration from Joel's work on Phoenix

    class_<A>(L, "A")
            value("my_enum", 4),
            value("my_2nd_enum", 7),
            value("another_enum", 6)

Mos' def!

It seems as though there must be a great deal of common work here.
It also seems as though pyste could easily(?) be adapted to generate
bindings for various languages.

I'd really like to see all this work brought together in Boost so the
common elements could be factored out and re-used (say, for Perl!).
