Ah but it will... someone so fasionably named it "phrakwm", he he

In all seriousness, if my "vision" is correct, when this is done, it
will be sort of like building a pillow fort when you were little....
the pillow fort was your design and exactly what you wanted, but the
pillows and cusions and chairs were already made... they were all
disjointed objects.

go ahead and start shoe-horning SWIG and whatnot into it - never
worked with that stuff, so it should be fun.
