Interesting, thanks.

Quite low level, more a Python binding to ODF than a document API, i.e. better 
than manipulating the data through an XML DOM, but one still needs to know a 
lot about ODF features and assumptions.
I guess a more convenient API could be built on top of something like this.

However, I think it serves quite well as an introduction to ODF concepts, I'll 
have to check its code when I find some time for that :)
