What level of support does your wrapper provide for the SPICE interface?
I was just taking a look to see if it might be under more active development and a suitable replacement for the existing wrapper I use (linked earlier). That version at the very least supports furnsh, utc2et, et2utc, spkpos (the ones I actively use in my codes).
Looking at your source tree, it’s unclear if your wrapper is more complete.
Can you clarify?
