Thanks all for your insights and suggestions.
It seems to me that there are a couple of ways to this bit manipulation 
and a couple of foreign modules to assist you with that.

Would it be worth the while to do a PEP on this?
Personally I think that it would be nice to have a standard module in 
Python for this but perhaps there is a good reason that there isn't 
already one.
