well, actually i don't know because i haven't tried. i am going to try
to use boost::python to wrap up parts of ACE (adaptive communication
environment) putting it all together with SCons. Maybe after my first
attempts i can say if there any advantages on either side :-)
btw, when do you think would be a good time to try to use V2 "seriously"?
i am willing to bleed but not to die :-)
