It's quite possible. However, I know when use_keywords is true, it
puts arg("x")=5 and such into declarations.

No you're absolutely right. I wrote that email at something like 3am
last night and I hadn't quite tested it properly. What you wrote is

No problem. I have the imageviewer.py example very nearly working.
Once it is working, I would consider the python bindings finished
apart from three items:
1. Named parameters do not work which is annoying because BPL throws
an exception if its type is as yet unregistered. This problem can't
be fixed by pyplusplus - it requires fixing BPL.
2. FXWinShellLink causes pyplusplus to generate bad code. This is
because it uses unions.
3. FXImage subclasses don't provide a working getData(). This
requires custom body text insertion to be added to pyplusplus.
Otherwise, they're finished! Thanks for all the help!
