Although I'm not experienced enough to comment on python stuff itself I 
do know that in general there are 2 reasons that  people reinvent the wheel:
- They didn't know of the existence of the first wheel
- They have different roads
Those reasons can even be combined.

The more difficult it is to create a new wheel the bigger the chance is 
that you:
- Search longer for fitting technologies
- Adapt your road
