There's also pycrypto for doing RSA encryption:
I messed around with this for a little while but decided I didn't need
it. ISTR figuring out that it does not implement any padding; is this
perhaps the armour option you're talking about? I'm not a cryptographer
and I don't even play one on TV, so the accuracy of this is probably
even less reliable than an average Usenet posting...
