yes, it is all here:
I've poked around the source a bit for a [now deceased] pet project of
mine: http://pypi.appspot.com/

There is a project made just for you!  It is a turbogears app called
EggBasket http://chrisarndt.de/projects/eggbasket/ and I've played
around with it some.  We run something similar at work (hand rolled)
that pre-dates EggBasket but eventually I hope to replace ours.
EggBasket does exactly what you want and I think the lightning talk
Cosmin mentioned was on this topic.

EggBasket requires turbogears and supports the register command
