I don't know of any in Python, Roger, but there are some free libraries
available for C++.  You can find them listed at:

You might be able to adapt one of these, rewrite it in python or maybe
just call it from python. 

I expect these would be rather computationally expensive, and so you
might be better off with having them written in C or C++.
