Hello Matteo! Well, I would say that python support is close to zero.
Felipe has committed some boilerplate code, but I am not sure if that
works. We think about using SWIG in order to generate bindings

That is a wise choice. The problem with bindings is that we haven't
defined an API yet, mainly because, from the library side, we don't
know what the client wants. At least I can tell you that we are going
to release write support for R2000 pretty soon. Anyway, if that's
something you're planning for now I could take a look at it, since it
is very important for us to have client applications using our
library, even if we're still alpha and haven't made a release yet.
