[Image-SIG] clarification on image segmentation routines

I have just started getting into PIL as a platform for experimenting with OCR 
for a language known as Tamil (a South Indian language).
It appears that PIL does not have any explicit image segmentation (character 
segmentation) routines. Before I venture into creating my own set of tools 
(as an extension of PIL), could you please let me know if such tools (or any 
form of OCR SDK) already exist for Python?
If I'm not mistaken, I could not find morphological filters 
(errosion/dialation) in PIL either. But then again, these can be easily 
constructed using the kernel-based filtering routine in PIL.

Thank you.
