libtransliterate is a C++ library converts “transliterated” representations of non-English languages (that use sequences as ANSI characters to represent characters) to Unicode. It supports TLG's Beta Code and cjhebrew. The library comes with a SWIG interface definition that may work with your favorite scripting language and a hand-coded Python interface with native Python Unicode support.
MediaWikiFTP integrates emacs with Wikipedia style MediaWiki sites. It is meant as a drop in replacement for your command line FTP client when used by Emacs to transparently access FTP servers. When used with a custom, non-FTP port, it will emulate an FTP server and client that makes Emacs think your Media Wiki site is an FTP server with your Wiki Articles as files. Otherwise, it will pass control to your regular FTP client.
The Object Relational Membrane is a Python package that provides the functionality of an object relational layer like EJB or other persistence storage systems. It is a thin compatibility layer between SQL table layouts and Object Oriented Python. While providing a good deal of functionality, it tries to be as small and simple as possible. It works with PostgreSQL, MySQL, Firebird, and Gadfly.
Psg is a Python module that lets you create PostScript files by embedding EPS files, bitmaps (through PIL), fonts, and arbitrary subsections from DSC compliant input files. This could be used to rewrite the psutils package in Python. A rudimentary layout engine to create connected text boxes is in place. The text functions support Type1 fonts and dynamically reencode them based on Unicode input. All input/output operations go through regular Python file objects.
