Depressing isn't it!

I couldn't find any after extensive searching.  I wasn't really looking for
Python solutions as such, more avoiding things in Perl/PHP etc. but I would
have noticed any Python ones.  I won't bore you with my theories on why this

Some applications such as nagios and moodss will at least allow you to write
your own scripts in Python.  This is probably OK for small networks.
