For connecting Python and Ada code, I have started the pyAda project
( Have you already used it? Do you have any comments?

Unfortunately, I wont' have much time in the next months to invest in pyAda.
But if you have something specific that you'd like to see there, just drop me a
note and I'll do this first. Else, the next goals are 1) more and better docs
and 2) going to Python 2.1.


PS: I am not too much convinced any more wether this project makes much sense
(Python's extension capabilities are a little too much tied to C for my tastes,
especially they need C's variable number of arguments madness and they are tied
to ugly, distasteful C #defines).
