if you start writing ADS/ARX wrappers, please tell me, so we can
share some of the work. I know of other people who would be
interested in such a thing as well, and who'd also be capable
of contributing. I believe that we could get a core group of
programmers together that know enough about the matters involved
to be helpful and would all profit from the result. I will have
to implement a very basic connection between Autocad and Python
myself in the very near future, and the broader foundation that
gets the better. I always prefer general solutions to fast hacks,
but of course, it's all a matter of the effort involved to
solve a specific problem. If my needs can be solved better
with a combined attack, then that would definitively be the
preferred solution!
