I've also been working on a Python-binding for Spread, but took a
different approach. I used a collection of extension types to
implement a mailbox object and various message objects, rather than
providing a higher level interface in Python. I'd be interested to
see which approach people find more useful; it might be a wash.
I had planned to send around an announcement next week, after I
cleaned up the code a little more. Too bad neither of use knew the
other was working on something :-).
The code is in the zope.org public CVS repository:
You can find instructions there on how to do a checkout.
