Ryan,

I'm looking at a doing a Python wrapper for a C++ library.  We've already 
done a Perl wrapper for this library using SWIG (I wasn't personally 
involved in that effort).  I'm debating whether I should do the Python 
version with SWIG or ctypes.  I'd be interested to hear about your 
experiences with both and why you switched.
