Sorry for being too lazy to go find the code, but a question:

What tool(s) are being used to develop the Python / C++ bridge? This can
make all the difference as to how easy it is to write a robust Python API.

If you want to be able to script the GUI, then it may make sense to use
PySide, and then use it's tool for developing other C++ / Python bindings:


Otherwise, I'm a big fan of Cython for calling C/C++ code from Python. It
allows tight integration and complete control and best-possible
performance. And there is X-Dress, for auto-generating Cython code that
calls C/C++. I haven't actually tried that yet, though...
