Just because I've been mentioning it everywhere else since I read it,
have you seen this paper:
? I don't know how applicable it would be to Python but it's well
worth the time it takes to read.
This makes it possible to pass complex object hierarchies to
a C coder who thinks computer science has made no worthwhile
advancements since the invention of the pointer.
