[sword-devel] Python api?

I can't remember if anyone else has done anything, but Chris Little's 
diatheke command-line program and cgi script are around in the 
sword source.

I tried playing with swig (www.swig.org) to make a python interface 
a fair while back but it was a bit messy. I've had a quick look and 
swig has improved a lot with c++ (it compiles out of the box, but 
haven't tried linking or running it yet) so it shouldn't be too difficult 
to make interfaces to perl, python, tcl, guile and ruby. It would be 
great if that could be part of 1.5.3 or 1.5.4
