That is definitely true. But there is and may be even more stuff around in 
future if it would be also accessible in a library like fashion. And even 
more, if there would be e. g. also a Python API.

Commercial applications still can call it as a black-box application through a 
system call doing a simple exec.

Who says it would need to be a lot of work for Graeme? It's an open source GPL 
project. So, assuming the coordination between several developers is managed 
sensibly, the creation of bindings can be handled by other developers. 
Bindings can be also automagically generated, using e. g. Py++, SWIG (ad done 
for e. g. OpenCV), or other mechanisms. Just given a talk at the BarCamp 
Auckland on hybrid Python/C++ development using automatic wrapper generation:
