[Tutor] checking for robots on a python script based site

Hello All!

I have a site that takes some input from the user and then produces a
dynamic page based on the input. In the last months bots (not only search
engine ones) have been hitting the site pretty heavily, so my sys admin
disabled it. As far as I know there are 2 options to fight this :
1: write a robots.txt file - but then I'd have to rely on the bots' good
2: implement a "captcha" mechanism, which I am not sure I want.

Does Python provide anything to deal with such problems ?
