class_t has property - always_expose_using_scope. If you set it to true, then
it can help you in next case:

struct A{
    void do_smth( const A& a=A() ){...}

Generated code will not throw exception, while registering the function.

Not just unions, but unnamed ones :-)

I work on a project that has same problem, you have good chance that I
will add missing

Can you send short example what pyplusplus generates now and the code you need
to be generated, may be I will find a solution.
