Heh, if you can wait a bit, I just put my own boost.python bindings for 
OSG on the web (today, actually) :


They're not complete and I'm struggling with slicing problems in 
NodeCallback and NodeVisitor derived in python code, but it's promising. 
In their current state I can create node hierarchies, geometry, 
vertex/normal/texcoord/color arrays, assign textures, do some basic 
state manipulation (rendering hint etc.) and run a viewer. See the *.py 
files in test/** , most of what the wrappers can do is tested there.

And if you want to help, you're welcome to do so :-)
