Right now we can’t call them so I have to dig into the code (oh, yurgh) and replicate relevant functionality. Tedious. I have noticed that a lot of python libraries are merely shims around C++ code but we can’t call that either without a C shim - and anyway the python code often does extra bits around the edges.

Kilon Alios (aka Dimitris Chloupis) has developed a Pharo/Python
bridge that is perhaps malleable for use with Squeak.
