well, usually it's simple, though many times sip doesn't report errors
in a friendly way, so it's easy to get stuck.

Hmm, looks like you've made a syntax error in the python/core/core.sip
file... I would have to see that one.

Generally the easiest way how to get more classes wrapped is to tell me :-)
Before wrapping the class I usually try to go through API of the class
and improve it slightly if the class is not very python friendly.
