VeePee is aimed at KDE and GNOME application developers and allows you to easily embed Python as a GUI-enabled scripting language in your application. Users benefit from a common scripting language allowing them to develop scripting skills that are re-usable with all their applications. The same VeePee script uses KDE widgets when run from a KDE application, and GNOME widgets when run from a GNOME application.
xml_pickle performs serialization to an XML format with several properties not possessed by the standard pickle module, namely, the format is human-readable, the format supports validation of stored serialized objects, and the format may be parsed, manipulated, and objects imported, by languages other than Python,
mxCrypto is an extension package that provides OO-style access to the cipher algorithms and hash functions included in OpenSSL/SSLeay, a very nifty cryptographic library originally written by Eric Young and now maintained by the OpenSSL team. Its main purpose is filling in the missing parts in Andrew Kuchling's pycrypt export package with high quality implementations. Due to the ITAR export restrictions on cryptographic software, Andrew's implementations are not legally downloadable from outside the US.
cgi_buffer is a group of libraries that may be used to improve performance of CGI scripts (and other content generation engines) in some circumstances by applying performance-enhancing HTTP mechanisms that are typically not supported by them. Currently, Perl, Python, and PHP4 are supported. The Python library may also be used as a wrapper around another CGI script.
