I'll have to see what I can export easily.  The autoconf macro I use
for python support is probably a good candidate for peer review
(certainly to compare it to other implementations like omniOrb's
etc.).  The Python libtool importer is fairly separable.  I'm
reluctant to reveal my SWIG builder, because it's a
editor and it's an awful hack.
