No; to the best of my knowledge there is no such package.

I probably should do it.  I did a crude one for Tcl, and I
even suspect I know of a client who'd pay for it, at least
in part.  Bluntly, while I'd like to do it, my calendar's
already too full, unless a lucrative contract falls on me,
and lets me shift other work around.

Is there another way?  Sure, there are lots.  You could
use Java- or Perl-based WSDL-savvy facilities, and control
them with Python.
