I assume you're reading in <http://www.heikkitoivonen.net/m2crypto/api/> 
about M2Crypto.EVP.Cipher.

Epydoc claims another victim.

I'm having a lot of trouble finding documentation.  The obvious OpenSSL 
pages are kind of thin, too.  You might see some useful code in the EVP unit 
tests m2crypto/tests/test_evp.py in the m2crypto installation.

	Good hunting,		Mel.
