Google for "Python pig latin" to see a lot of "prior art".
And it might be useful as a step as part of a word-based password generator. :-)
>>> words = open("/usr/dict/words")
>>> words = [word.strip() for word in words if len(word) == 5]
>>> import random
['live', 'skat', 'levy', 'cove']
>>> [makePigLatin(word) for word in words[0:4]]
['ivelay', 'atskay', 'evylay', 'ovecay']
