Thanks.  I think there's still time to get it in, but not much.  And
I've never written a nontrivial C module before, so I hope I don't
take too long.

Note that the file I put up had a number of bugs; I've updated it
several times today.  If you got it as soon as you saw the original
post (or the announcement on the python-crypto list), please get the
latest version.
