Has somebody been working on a wrapper module around the mmap() set of
functions ?
The purpose would be to provide for providing Python access to mapped
I imagine that the implementation would have the mapped memory areas
appear as Python buffer objects (in read or read/write modes), and that
sub-buffer objects could be extracted...

I'll be glad to hear from any one having approached the subject...
