I used Boost.Python in combination with the numarray c-API to export 
some algorithms I wrote in Vigra to be exported to python on the image 
level; I don't think exporting Vigra on a lower level than that is 
either feasible nor preferable: numarray support in python is quite good 
and Vigra's templated C++ design is going to be hard to pythonize 
anyway. OF course you could use Numeric or PIL or any other library that 
supports images to represent your images in python and then have 
bindings to run Vigra algorithms on those.
