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
