I think having the same facilities is vital, but having the same 
interface is very important.  If I understand it correctly, the problem 
with SWIG is that it relies on there already existing a solid, 
well-designed C API which can be wrapped - which is the case for NumPy, 
but isn't for C extensions in general AFAIK.
