Fusion allows you to implement protocols for TCP and UDP in C++,
minimizing data copying and function call overhead. Most people should
just stick to Python, of course :) Note that I have no code that uses
this version of Fusion, and unit tests (while next on my very
theoretical todo list) do not yet exist, so use with caution -- I'd love
to hear success stories from anyone who is using it.

v0.3 fixes a memory leak, and also allows Fusion to build on modern
versions of Python and modern compilers. I built it with Python 2.6 and
boost::python v1.40, but it should work with other versions as well.
