There are actually two Python pieces, not counting Swift.  ;)  One is a 
set of Python bindings
for libgfapi; the other is a "meta-translator" that supports writing 
translator logic in Python.
Both are woefully incomplete, and the libgfapi glue is probably out of 
date as well.  As far as
release status, the libgfapi glue is in master, but glupy is only in my 
own GitHub repository.
One of my plans for downtime during this extended road trip is to spend 
some of my spare
moments in airports and hotels bringing these bits up to date.  It's a 
good task for that,
because - unlike e.g. fixing bugs deep inside AFR - it doesn't require 
deep concentration for
long periods of time.  Like writing short stories instead of novels.  ;)
