[pypy-dev] supporting new libraries

i personally have made quite bad experice with swig and mostly not so
good with most bindings generators so far.
recently i found http://code.google.com/p/pybindgen/ and found the
quality of the the generator really a good starting point; also that it
uses gccxml for itrospection for auto generated bindings removes a lot
of pain :-)
i started making me thoughts to refactor pybindgen to generate not only
python wrappers ( i need lua wrappers sometimes, too). While beeing at
it i thought, why not use it to generate pypy wrapping code, too. So
python_c is just another target same as pypy. maybe some code can be
shared between such same language, different interpreter backends.
maybe the frontend could be abstracted a bit, too. so if someone writes
a defs parser the gtk python definitions could be used and only the
overloaded functions need customizations, same goes for the qt4 sip
stuff i think.
what do you think ?
PS: sorry for breaking the thread, i just subscribed :-)
