I've actually written many wrappers using SWIG, and I have found it can
be very good for simple things.  It can also be a good way to get your
"initial" wrapping.  I've always found that to get better performance
and to do more complicated wrappings you need to extend what SWIG can do
(unless you want to learn about SWIG typemaps ACK!)
