Matteo, it would be great if you could give us a hand on that! I think
SWIG is a good option because it is flexible. if we change the API it
is just a matter of regenerating the code.

Sure. See what you can do and send us a patch. I can get you git push
access. Our rules are not strict at all: one or two patches and you
