SIMO project switches to Python

Recently we've been active in rewriting our prototype XML-simulator in Python. There is a new branch in the repository. The initial results of this rewrite from full C implementation to a combined Python - C implementation are so promising that this is the path we're very likely to take: the model library will be written as a shared C library and everything else in Python. We're currently using the ElementTree XML-parser by Fredrik Lundh in the simulator. Wingware has kindly provided us with open source development licenses for their excellent Python IDE.
