That is completely true.
Pyrex is my language of choice for wrapping pretty complex set of C
interfaces written in a totally not-OO style in a nifty OO Python interface.
I choose Pyrex for that very reasons Francois described. It gave me total
control and uniformity of my program.
The only small addition I made is handling array of structures and I believe
that soon can be handled inside Pyrex itself. Greg is doing very good job.
