You have the right ideas. The problem is there is not "the one best" answer.
If you have only one function like foo, write a "thin wrapper," i.e. a
standalone function similar to:
foo_wrapper(ExampleClass& self, boost::python::tuple int_tuple)
// assert len(int_tuple) == 3
// loop over elements of the tuple
// use boost::python::extract<int>, copy value to boost_int_tuple
Note that the standalone C++ function is wrapped as a Python member function.
If you have many functions with int_tuple arguments you want to think about
writing a custom converter. This is an advanced subject, but we can walk you
through. In any case, try the thin wrapper first. You can use it as a starting
point for a custom converter.
