Idle too long, poking at it again just to get if off my plate (given
the success of one-day projects like
handrss.py, I should be able to
do the same here, and this is something I'd use daily...)
Note that structurally, I'd like to put as much in python as makes sense, without contortion; so, the library should handle authenticators, at least at this stage, but maybe the upper level code should handle sending packets. Given how well the perl code worked, though, using struct for the packing may not be unreasonable, as long as I can be sure that the interface is nonetheless covered.
