This is fantastic!  I had just been working on my own C++ binding in the
spirit of Boost-Python, but I think mine is not quite as far along as
yours so I'll gladly drop it and use yours.  Can you please tell us what
the license is for yours though?  It doesn't seem to say on the webpage
or in the source files.
