[OpenAFS] python interfaces

I know there perl modules for managing afs. I wonder if anyone might
have written a python module for do so? I really can't stand perl. In
the absence of python modules, are there any switches for the afs
commands fs and pts that gives more 'parseable' output? Then I could
write my own python wrappers for these.

Finally, I've been trying to conceptualize a better way to 'get a
handle' on access priveledges. Over the years I find there are pts
groups or old acls that I just forgot about. Just yesterday a
terminated employee snuck through on pts group that I forget to remove
her from and cause a little trouble. So I was wondering if there are
any 'normalized view' of afs acls -- something like a relational data
base view that could be used to better represent access permissions
over a directory set.

finally finally (sorry for the kicten soup), is there a way to
enumerate all the groups a single afs id has membership in?
