Rumor has it that Kent Johnson may have mentioned these words:

About the only decent "best guess stab" at this I could add is:

One of the latest versions of OpenOffice (1.1.2) for windows has a module 
that will let it interface with Python, and it will open MSWord and MSExcel 
files. Maybe the Linux version has the same module?

Also, for the OP: Sharing files and directories is all built into 
the  network functionality, not something derived internally in Python.

Hope this helps,
