[Image-SIG] Combining PIL and Boost.Python

I am working on a system that has already a lot of functionality
exported with Boost.Python. I want to add PIL to the system. I am
wondering how to do the following.
In short: I want to create a totally independent library with PIL
extensions. This library should be exported with Boost.
I want to be able to extend PIL in my own module without touching the
source code of PIL. I have played a bit already, and the way I do it now
involves editing Imaging.h, _imaging.c and Image.py (and setup.py).
Starting from a C/C++ function, e.g.
Imaging myPILExtension(Imaging img1, Imaging img2, MyClass mc)
I could export it using Boost, but how can I make sure my Boost wrapper
around Imaging is considered the same as a python Image as it is now?
If anybody has experience with this, please share it.
I don't have much experience with exporting, so any help is very welcome!
