<groan> I had an awful feeling you might say that.
Ok, tell me this: is function::call() the right place to alter? If
so, it would appear to me to be trivial - just insert the object
instance as the first parameter if all else fails.
As for adding knowledge if there are mixed static and non-static
methods, well, as I've said before in here I really don't understand
most of Boost.Python. I would imagine though that just altering the
parameter matching loop wouldn't cause any existing code to break -
so it should be okay?
Would I post a patch here, or to you directly? And is GNU diff format
