Herman, thanks for adding to the testing eco-system.  Could you please 
add a statement about what versions of Python your library supports?  I 
test my code on 2.3 through 3.2, and I can only use tools that can also 
support those versions.  The only way for me to know if your library 
supports those versions is to try it, see what fails, and decide if it's 
a version incompatibility.
