I'd be interested in some astronomical utilities from the IDL Astronomy User's 
Library (http://idlastro.gsfc.nasa.gov/contents.html) converted to 
python/numpy. I had a look to idl2python 
(http://software.pseudogreen.org/i2py/), but the automatic translation fails, 
mostly because (I think) the conversion is Numeric-oriented, and because of 
the intrinsic differences in the function argument management between IDL and 

So, before pursuing in this direction, I'd like to know if this exercice has 
already been done, at least partially.
