[PythonCAD] Looking for DXF help

Hi All,

I am in need of code for writing DXF or DWG files from Python. My 
application is pretty simple, only 2-D, but I need to write in 
world-coordinates. The application is drawing geological cross-sections 
from spatial data and lithological data. I have done this in 1998 using 
VB (ugh!), but my new data management framework is all Python (yeah!). I 
can of course write DXF files "by hand", but I'd really rather use a 
library if one exists.

Incidentally, is the OpenDWG library python-able? SWIG-able? Not quite 
"open", but it's pretty good...

Does PythonCAD plot to scale? Does it have hatching/fill patterns? Would 
it be a capable cross-section drawing tool (in Win32 or Linux)?
