Thank you ..

But: I could rename it once I have it - however, unless I change that
"init_example" to "initexample" by hand, it dies in the linking step with a
unresolved reference to initexample ...

Could that be some name mangling issue because of Python beeing build with
another compiler ?

I also just realized that I have the same problem using cygwin - swig
generates "init_example", the linker looks for "initexample" ....
