There is, but not much simpler.  You still have to build an extension 
that the Objective-C code is going to live in.  If it was a pre-built 
framework or plug-in it would be a different story, but compiling one 
of those is harder than having distutils build an extension.

You forgot to specify WHICH notification in Converter.. you're saying 
"add my documentChanged: selector as an observer to... nothing".

Also, use self = super(Converter, self).init()
