Well, vim-python comes with a python module,  It's imported from
within a vim session and provides access to vim objects (buffers, lines,
settings) with a python interface.

I don't know if this will work if imported from outside of a vim
session, but it's worth trying. I'll check it out tomorrow.

And even if it _can't_ be used from outside vim, you might consider a
different name for the module, eg, vim_remote or something.

Good night all.
