Rudimentary dict (RFC 2229) client library

Hi all;

I needed to use some dict servers and wanted to do it in python. Since
there's no standard library module for this, I wrote a simple one myself.
It's missing some of the bells and whistles of the dict protocol, and 
isn't exactly an illustration of the best way to do it; but it gets the
job done.

I'm posting it here in the hopes that someone else will find it useful. If
you have any corrections (or nitpicks), please let me know!
