I think the question about where Cython fits into this, raises the
need for a complementary list to Steven's.   What are the different
ways in which python can be extended/embedded. eg

1. 'Classic' extending/embedding
3. PyCXX
4. Boost
5. Cython
6. Swig
7. Sip
8. ctypes

Is such a list maintained somewhere?
