When you have some spare time, you might want to look at http://www.swig.org
SWIG is a mechanism for generating the "wrapper" code needed to
interface scripting languages to C or C++
I have no clue how easy it would be to extend it to cover Transcript -
but it might be some help (and I'm sure it will be interesting). I think
this would potentially be the right long-term approach for Transcript;
there is enough momentum behind SWIG for Perl and Python that many
external libraries already produce the appropriate interface definition
files for SWIG; being able to build Transcript interfaces that way
would, I think, help to increase the availability of external libraries.
