A naive questions; hich platforms are developments first aimed at ie
gnu/linux win32 etc?

Thomas Heller's ctypes module would seem to be a very good start at the
generic C interface thing. It is pretty easy to use and although I don't
have a complete grasp on it was a bit easier to use than calldll. I used
both to do anygui interfaces to native windows api.

Last time I discussed this with him Thomas said he was considering using
the libffi library to do interfacing. I know that to be fairly portable.
