I'm now on the scipy mail list. Things look hopeful, according to the first 
respondent, to meet my criteria mentioned in another sub-thread to this one:
"I'm hoping the use of this library will be relative simple for my
purposes, which are basically to write an image to a fits file with a
somewhat simple header, which might include lat/long, date, image size,
date-time, and a comment."

Apparently, the first chapter or several pages or so of a manual distributed 
with PyFits is enough.
