HL7 servers in Python?

I have implemented a commercial HL7 server using C++ before.

>From my knowledge, there is no Python version avaliable. You can find free
C++ and java versions somewhere. I guess you can wrap them if you want.

To be honest, I don't think writting a HL7 server using python is hard. You
already get daemon, service, parser generator, threads, sockets and http
servers in python. What you really need to do is putting them together to
parse your Hl7 2.3 or 3.0 messages. (for 3.0, you need xml support.)

Hope this helps.
