[C++-sig] Passing C++ arrays as arguments

I'm exposing to Python some third party library wich has an API like

struct Abstract{
    virtual void f(float[16])=0;

Abstract *createInstance();

with this code:

def("createInstance", createInstance, return_value_policy<manage_new_object>());
class_<Abstract, boost::noncopyable>("Abstract", no_init)
    .def("f", Abstract::f);

Can I simply define some from python tuple to float[16] converter so
that I can call object returned from createInstance like this:
createInstance().f((0,)*16) ?

Best regards,
