Yes, this would be cool, even if it is just a remark saying that it
works with the latest version.

Our experience with a few libraries wrapped in SWIG is that it tends to be 
hard on the interesting interface cases and usually produces binding that are 
not very pythonic nor high level. Thus we went back doing direct wrappers 
without SWIG as it did caused more work whenever we had a special case and
interface tend to consist out out special causes.

I would want Mailman and roundup to be able to receive and send encrypted 
emails, at some point in time we will give it a shot with pyme and then you 
will get reports. ;)
