interprocess communication (shared memory...) for Python

This package allows one to access the System V Interprocess communication mechanisms from within Python: + message queues; + semaphore sets; + shared memory segments.

This plug-in serves primarily two use cases: + parallel (multiprocess) computing; + mixed applications (e.g. python/yorick).

A sibling package is available for Yorick: yorick-svipc
