PyProximity offers C implementations of soundex, metaphone, and
Levenshtein edit distance (
http://sourceforge.net/projects/pyproximity/ ).

I use the PyProximity implementation of the Levenshtein edit distance
algorithm, and the nysiis.py implementation of the NYSIIS soundex
algorithm ( http://metagram.webreply.com/downloads/nysiis.py ).
