Not as far as I know. Lists in Python are internal objects. If you were
able to package the C and Python programs together (C extension, SWIG,
...???) then you could write the Python object directly from the C program.
What will the Python program do with the lists? And what does huge mean.
Does it have to be a list? Is performance an issue or storage space or what?
