Our priority in Saxonica is to get Saxon/C working well in the PHP
environment, and thanks to the help of users who understand the PHP world a
lot better than we do, we're making good progress on that. Meanwhile we
certainly know there are opportunities for Python (and beyond) as well, and if
anyone wants to pioneer getting things working for Python we'll be happy to
provide what support we can, starting from a base of almost zero knowledge.

might help with the problem -- SWIG for example -- but I don't know much
beyond that.
