As in, the non-static version takes "self", yes I get that ...

Which I used. And I should add there's no docs saying that you can't
mix static and non-static names though I admit it's implied by how

Might it be an idea in the name of flexibility that boost.python
marks mixed static and non-static functions and tries matching the
static one first. If that fails, then it makes the first parameter
"self" and tries again.
That way you get both working nicely in almost all cases, and a more
accurate interface is provided to python?
