I haven't explored bonobo adequately yet, but I suspect we won't need the
ORBit bindings before we can make bonobo bindings.

It is my understanding that while bonobo uses ORBit, it is just a library.
If I am correct, non-elegant bindings should be relatively easy. By
"non-elegant", I mean it the Python interface would feel more C-ish than

In fact, I saw this program, SWIG, on freshmeat, which seemed to imply
that it would spit out the Python-C stubs automatically for a library.
