That's no fun!
I'd never see mpmath before, it looks like it is worth investigating.
Nevertheless, I still intend working on my lambert function, as it's a
good learning exercise.
I did look into SciPy's lambert too, and was put off by this warning in
"In some corner cases, lambertw might currently fail to converge"
Naturally I thought "I can do better than that". Looks like I can't :)
