FWIW, long ago I veered away and found it to be much worse over in
that world. I wrote a special Python-based code template processing
engine to generate code for Boost.Python. The result was that --
despite my best efforts -- the inputs were not significantly more
readable or debuggable than what I have today using the PP, and the
result had significant disadvantages. I'm very happy to have
Boost.Python back in the 100% C++ land it occupies today.
