Well I have looked at it, and either I had insufficient time or 
insuffictient knowledge or both, but I wasn't able to grasp 
Boost.Python's internals well enough. I had hoped that the 
Boost.Langbinding project would make those internals more manageable, 
but unfortunately that project is progressing rather slowly, due to the 
busy schedules of the authors I think. In the mean-time I have said 
Python farewell for the most part, so I don't think it would be 
realistic to wait for me to fix the Py_Finalize bug. I am sorry I had to 
break my promise, but that's the way it is I'm afraid.
