How about actually stating you question properly in the original email,
rather than an email without even a proper body, just a question in the
header. Originally the question was has anyone used this software, now it is 
has anyone got python to work with it. Those are two very different
questions. The first is hardly on topic, the second is semi-on topic
for this list.

Also take the time to do some investigating on your own, and spend more than
30 seconds writing exactly what you are trying to find out. An email 
with a question in the header does not give incentive for anyone to spend
their own precious time helping you out. If you have not noticed, your style 
over the few days have started rubbing people around the python mailing lists
the wrong way, so a softer style might give you more help.
