Embeding Python... (Please help !)

Our problem is so trivial, it's crazy that we can't find anything on the net
that would help us.

We are trying to use the function PyArg_Parse and others in order to simply
get a correctly casted pointer to a Python Class instance.

That python class is in fact a subclass of a C++ class defining an
interface. Our python file knows this interface class through SIP bindings.

There are some examples of how we can get simple C type values (strings,
int, float...) from Python types but nothing on pointers to class... We
tried to use the O& option but it doesn't work.


<<<<<<< PYTHON FILE >>>>>>>>>>>>>
import Interfaces # From sipping

def CreateInstance ():
    return Server ()

class Server (Interfaces.interface):
        def __init__(self):

<<<<<<<<< INTERFACE .h DEFINITION FILE>>>>>>>>>>>
class interface{

<<<<<<<< MAIN APPLICATION >>>>>>>

#include "Interfaces.h"
........python stuff to load and compile the python file...this works
fine... we tested it !

PyObject * m_pylib = PyImport_ExecCodeModule( const_cast<char*>("server"),
code );
Py_INCREF( m_pylib );

PyObject * mdict = PyModule_GetDict(m_pylib);
PyObject  * func1 = PyDict_GetItemString(mdict, "CreateInstance");
PyObject * v1 = PyObject_CallObject(func1,NULL);

interface * interf = (interface*) v1;  // OF COURSE THIS DOESN'T WORK BUT


Thanks for any help !
