I have some functions that make wrapping the GSL special functions  
much simpler.  I've used them
to wrap all of the Airy and Bessel functions.  The process could be  
automated, but there are a few
more cases than convenient.  (For example, the computationally  
expensive functions take an additional
argument specifying how much precision is desired.)  It wouldn't be  
too much work to automate the
most common cases (double arg, double return and double arg, error  
struct return); perhaps doing the
remainder by hand is reasonable.

I also have bindings for all of the ODE integration routines and all  
of the numerical differentiation
routines.  All are low level, just exposing the underlying GSL  
routines without any "convenience wrapper".
I can make them available if anyone is interested.

Best Wishes,
