Hi folks:

I'm wondering if someone has made the XPA messaging system available as a 
python module.  As I understand it, it is used by DS9's gui process to 
receive user input from a user-level process.  I have a viewer somewhat 
similar to DS9 that I'm trying to move to the python world; I need 
console/scripted input as well as normal responsiveness to events on the gui.

I imagine a python-XPA module would be quite useful in many other contexts 
as well.
