I did not use it myself but there is an example in the book "Python
Standard Library" by Fredrik Lundh.  The example file is called, maybe you can find it somewhere on the internet.

If my english was better I would love to help improve the python
documentation, most modules in the standard libraries lack good
examples how to *use* them with just a simple description.  And a
short motivation for the design of a module if possible like "just
copied the C API" or "Because of efficiency ..." or "We use a class
framework here because ...".  A gigantic task.  The PSL book by effbot
is great but it's a book.  And it needs a new version.
