My first ebuild (In glorious black-and-white...)

Turns out that 99.99% of the work of doing ebuilds for Python packages is done for you. You just need to tell the script what the name, description, filename, and download URL of the package are. For SourceForge projects (almost all of mine) there's even built-in support for downloading from the SourceForge mirror sites.

For the non-geeks in the audience, clicking on the "continue reading" link will bring you face to face with a computer-code listing! Egads! Whatever you do, don't click that link! Mostly I'm just posting it here as I imagine that Tim (or some other geek reading the blog) might be interested in wrapping up a Python module for someone else some day.
