I'm having problems embedding Python in C++.

I understand that I can call a python objects method
using PyImport_ImportModule, PyObject_GetAttrString and
But this method relies on the object being declared and initialsed

Is there a better way of doing this?
Is it necessary / a good idea to use Boost or Swig?
I'd rather code it by hand using the Python C API if possible.
