Because Rémi created that git for me, so well...

Actually, I'm looking into parsing doxygen xml output now instead, as 
you proposed. Python generator removes all constness, which is not very 
good for C++, and changing it in a way that it allows consts, would make 
me also to change lots of stuff in python part of generator (or to leave 
it in nonworkable state)... It would make sense to add support for 
ctypes-based python bindings to doxygen xml parser, but that's later.

Also having C++- and every-language-bindings in python/ is just weird 
IMHO. I even think that I should not make swiggy python bindings, to not 
to confuse people by 2 different python bindings, but in that case 
every-language-except-python laying in python/ is even more weird...
