I will admit i SWIG'd gcc, once, and generated python wrappers, but this
was before tree-ssa, so it wasn't all that useful.

There is some appeal to being able to prototype passes, etc, in python.
It's a ton of work to get the bindings going though.

Maybe SWIG is much better than it was, in which case, cool!
