Thanks Arto!

I started my own FFI binding just before the Easter break, and was pleasantly surprised by how straightforward it was. Bit tedious, so I'm happy you've done the hard work :-)

There is a tool to generate ffi bindings from swig:

<http://github.com/ffi/ffi-swig-generator>

Which was far from perfect (i.e. the output required some fixes) but might save some work in the long run.
