No, I'm really not, sorry.

Somewhat related, I adopted the Python bindings for GPGME, and I was
convinced by Python users that publishing on pypi is important for the
bindings to be used.  However, we also have the problem of people trying
to build the bindings from pypi with older versions of the library, and
one person actually suggested to build the library itself as part of
building the binginds to work around that.

Nowadays I tend to think that it is better to distribute the bindings
through the same channels as the library.
