I will study the examples. I and Lakin Wecker work on Python bindings for Ogre.
That library contains few classes like Matrix3 or Matrix4( Vector3, Vector4 ).
Those classes have constructors from regular C++ arrays. It could be nice if
we can create Python bindings, where user could pass Python list or
tuple instead
of [Matrix|Vector][3|4] as argument to functions.

If I understand right, custom rvalue converters is the way to go, right?
The only question I have is how it will work in presents of registration of
[Matrix|Vector][3|4] classes?

Thank you for your help.
