I believe SIP came about because the author needed to wrap C++ back when
SWIG's support for C++ was minimal or nonexistent (a long time ago :). I
don't believe boost.python existed back then either.
It looks like no-one's able to offer up a comparison - feel like writing one
yourself? The community would love ya :)
[and hey, add something to the wiki on python.org so others can maintain it
