Python Audio I/O libs - Linux/Windows

Does anyone know of a multiplatform audio lib (well, at least Linux and
Windows) that can play *and capture* audio, in a system-independent (eg
WAV) format?

I don't want 200 different delays, 150 choruses, 300 guitar effects,
spatial processing etc - I just want a simple Python API that will let me
open the system default audio device, set a sampling rate and grab small
chunks of raw audio, do stuff with them, then play them back.

So far, have checked out audiere (play only), snack (requires Tk -
unacceptable), and wx (play only).

All help appreciated.
