As far as I know, i2py is an abandoned project.  I think it only worked
partially even when it was maintained.  Ouf of curiosity, which IDL
programs did you want to convert to python?  If you're familiar with IDL
but not so much with python, converting IDL programs to python is a good
way learn it.
