I hear ya!   I hear ya!  You know, I just had a kid.  That's my new excuse for
not working on it, although this one is a bit more, uh, plausible.

I'll see if I can get some time this evening to finish the Python bindings.
It's not difficult work, it's just fairly dull, repetitive work (any
volunteers?)  The automated wrapper generators did a poor job, so I had to
rewrite the stuff by hand.

Currently, I've wrapped:

- The Config class
- The Terminal class
- The CursesTerminal class
- The SlangTerminal class
- The DisplayBuffer class
- The Display class
- The Field class
- The PrintSession class

I still have yet to wrap:
- The DebugTerminal class (started)
- The GtkTerminal class
- The Record class
- The Session class
- The CharMap class
- The Stream class
- The WTDContext class

and there are plenty of "XXX:" comments that indicate places where things
need to be fixed.  Most of this is issues with reference counting objects
referenced from Python and the emulator, some of this has to do with the
wrapper code being incomplete (usually because the method takes a parameter
which is a reference to an object of a type which hasn't yet been wrapped).

The code is currently 3,227 lines long, so it'll probably be > 6,000 lines
when finished.  Maybe it'll be less... the worst (Display and DisplayBuffer
classes) is finished.
