Unix message queues?

Hi,

I would like to use Unix message queues from Python, in order to talk to
legacy apps using this IPC. What is needed is an interface to msgget(),
msgrcv(), msgsnd(), ... So the Queue module in the standard distribution is
not really usable for this.

The socket interface in Python works great, so I thought queues would be
available as well?

Any known implementations?

Thanks,

/Dag
