Has anyone written a Python-Mathematica module? Something like Tmath
(which I just read about today in the Mathematica newsgroup).

Ideally, it would be bi-directional. Tmath appears to be uni-drectional,
meaning that Tcl can call Mathematica functions and have the results
returned to Tcl. Doing the same in python should be pretty

What would be really interesting to me is the ability to extend
Mathematica by being able to call Python code from within a Mathematica
notebook (using Mathlink, etc.). We already do this with Perl, but it's
such an incredibly ugly hack, that I don't want to be colored by our 4
year old code in starting a Python effort :-(

Any pointers (even to extremely rough works in progress) would be
appreciated. I might be willing to take over the work (if it has fallen
through the cracks) and then donate the code back.
