Why not take advantage of it? You've already discovered how
hand-writing extensions can be painful. SWIG is probably best for
you. Ignore all the fancy SWIG features, just ask it to wrap the
function, it's very easy.

SWIG should be able to do that. There's probably some overhead above
a hand-written wrapper, but it's so trivial to use SWIG in this simple
way that you probably shouldn't begin to worry about that -- it's
unlikely to be a problem.
