I see that someone has put a lot of effort into creating SWIG bindings
for Python. Does anyone know the status of this work? Is this the way
forward for GnuCash reports?
Alternatively, given that GnuCash has so much Scheme code in it, would
it be a better solution to create a chunk of Scheme that processes
report templates written in some form of pseudo-HTML (for example)?
Then report designers could just change the report templates rather than
having to get to grips with Scheme.
