Hello friends,

As you might know, Redis is an in-memory key-value store library..and much
more. Its officially supported only on *nix operating systems.

redis-py <https://pypi.python.org/pypi/redis/2.7.2> is the default client
Redis interface in python. redis-py is pure python.

hiredis <https://github.com/antirez/redis/tree/unstable/deps/hiredis> is a
C client interface to reading responses from a Redis server.
hiredis-py<https://pypi.python.org/pypi/hiredis/0.1.1> is
the python wrapper on hiredis. *It works only in *nix operating systems
(mostly because its officially designed to use POSIX socket api)*
Redis and hiredis have been made available in Windows by Microsoft Open
Source wing on github (https://github.com/MSOpenTech/redis)
However that version of hiredis is not wrapped in Python !!

I am looking for a hiredis-py port on Windows. Any ideas?
Anybody willing to be kind enough make this available to the open source
world at large would be doing a great job. Any takers :)) ?

Thanks and best regards,
Vishal Sapre

p.s: I have access to hiredis.lib and hiredis.dll, but they would need
ctypes/pywin32 wrappers to call.
