Both parts of the patch are only thought to demonstrate the idea.
You said you'll attack the Python part - good.

For the C part, the most prominemt things that are missing are these:

- free(logopt) should be called at the end of the 'if (logopts != NULL) {' block.

- error handling should be improved.  Errors in this block should probably exit Python.
