Ooh, I've wanted someone to do this for such a long time! Congrats.

Would you mind writing up a document describing how you want your
interface to work? 

For this to be quite usefull it needs a good natural python interface,
probably one that doesn't exactly match the C++ one - that was built for
efficiency not ease of use.

For instance, I'd instantiate a records parser at the start and make it
implicitly available when you do things like:



That seems like a natural sort of interface to have..
