from C#. Of course, probably there would have to be some work done on

In essence, this is what SWIG is doing, however, SWIG is trying to
wrap C++ and present an object-oriented interface, which is
substantially harder than a C interface. If you're interested at all
in this, I know enough about what's involved to at least give some
