There is a version of 'osce.py' that provides the functions you need. It was
created by 'telion' and was mentioned on the list not long ago. Either gogole
or the list archives will find it.

As python has 'OS specific' versions of several modules already, there would be
a case for moiving this into core python (IMHO).
