I never did, but you can trick sip into returning any kind of Python object
as shown in the attached file (this code returns VTK Python extension objects).

Pointers to classes that should not be handled by sip are replaced by pointers
to void.  This implies that you have provide %MemberCode to do the interfacing

Beware, you have to patch sip's output to import the Numerical Python

If you don't get it working, send me a very simple example and I'll wrap it
for you.
