Acknowledging that there is a number of people interested in interfacing
python and caml, I just put up a website from which our bugfixed and
extended variant of Art Yerkes' "pycaml" module can be downloaded:

(Note ad Debian developers: this fixes some major memory management bugs
that can cause crashes in the original pycaml module which is in Debian,
so, ideally, our variant should eventually supersede the code that is at
present in that Debian package. Interface-wise, our module provides more
than the original one, but I think I also had to remove two or three
very obscure functions.)

best regards,
