I was thinking about this today (triggered by the original email!).

How realistic is it to create an API-extractor definition -> Cython
tool, combined with the (possibly more developed) pxd generation tool:

(which seemingly is in an alpha state)

Is there more to creating QT bindings than that? How much effort would
that be?

It strikes me that Cython solves many of the difficult problems already,
and it supports C++ pretty well now.

(It's a genuine question, not an arrogant put down)
