Inline::Python, pyperl, etc.

The group I work with is trying to be language agnostic between Python
and perl. We are trying to make it so that we are able to call our
various APIs from one language or the other without having to care* what
language the API was written in.
I've been looking into:
The interest in these projects seems to have died off about 2001,
however. That, or they simply haven't needed to be updated for the last
few Python versions.
I've bumped into some snags with pyperl (can't import perl2.so? But
it's right there in site-packages/ !), and I'm wondering if it's bitrot
or a config error on my end.
Similarly, with Inline::Python I end up getting strings passed into my
python code when I expect integers (I posted about this on
inline at perl.org, but things seem pretty dead over there).
Is anyone actually using any of this stuff?
Thanks for any feedback,
[*] Obviously this is a golden ideal. We're willing to make compromises
to get things to work.
