I would advice you to take hints from the existing tools and then devise a
module specific to your requirements. Working with excel depends a lot on
what you want to do with the data that you are working on and so a single
module is rarely all that you need.
If you are on a windows machine, win32com is your best friend, because it
will allow you to do almost everything with excel (charts, pivot tables etc
etc, apart from regular row/col data management)

tip: on some versions of excel, the excel specific constants (xlFirstRow,
xlFirstColumn etc) are not available readily after creation of the excel
object in Python. You would be better off maintaining these variables and
their values in your module separately. For more info on these constants,
try MSDN.

Take care,
