ctypes brings with it it's own troubles. To use it in any non-trivial way,
one must write enough non-trivial wrapper code in Python. Performance
is also affected (though I haven't measured it myself).
Boost.Python is another option.
All said, it is not so difficult to write Python extensions in C (which
probably is one reason so many glue tools exist?).
