As a windows user (and now admin) of Trac (trac.edgewall.org) I have
always appreciated the python bindings as a necessary part of the
package. It is one of the reasons that I was able to propose and am now
implementing Trac and subversion at work (which mandates windoze instead
of linux).

I looked at building what we needed from source but do not have time
allocated nor access to virtual machines (or even permission to install
all the requisite packages!) to be able to do it myself.

So, many thanks to D J Heap, Troy Simpson & co for all the hard work and
a plea to continue to support apache and bindings...
