I doubt any of those support SIDL, since it appears to be both highly
specialised and unpopular (according to Google).  If you want
opinions, you might try the SciPy or Numeric / numarray mailing lists
-- no guarantee that anybody's heard of it, of course ;-)

If you had a specific problem with Boost.Python, ask about that (the
c++-sig list is probably the best place to ask -- search the archives
first, though).
