I've solved problems like this with simple Python scripts generating the C++
code with the Boost.Python bindings (e.g. http://cci.lbl.gov/gltbx/). Note that
I'm not using gcc-xml to maximize portability. If you are using pyste or py++
already I'd try to solve your problem by customizing the general-purpose code

Sounds like a good idea. I'd give it a try.
