When I initially wrapped a C++ API for one of my previous jobs in pyhton it
took less than an hour. Embedding was harder and took a few days. I agree
that the docs could be improved, especially the embedding docs. But it is
also true that with a library so internally complicated as BPL docs have
limited value, and that's where this list comes in.
