What you're looking for is an asyncronous publish subscribe
text and/or serialized object delivery service between mutual
peers? With possible serialization using xml pickle, but
even better, with extensible/plugin-based serialization?
Would the backing store be for session rejoin / recovery,
or did you have something else in mind?

I'm asking you this, because as it so happens I'm working on
a _paid_ government research project at the moment in this
area, and am in the process of developing a reliable,
channelized UDP layer to support much of this. While my
primary work is not in Python, much of the first pass prototype
work is.

If I got a CVS tree root up on source forge, I wonder how many
people would be interested in working on it? I might do the
initial work, and then give it to the community. The government
would probably be as happy as pie to successfully host a
worthwhile open source effort.
