Well, *I'm* not planning on creating such a package least I spend most of my 
time until retirement creating and maintaining a package for every possible 
language (C++, Python, Ruby, Perl, Haskel, Scheme, ...)  :-)

Rob Cermak, another user of Unidata software, has, however, created such a 

Just wanted to pass along that I cobbled together some C code that
compiles into a python module using the distutils. Different versions of
python might have different needs :(


By no means making full use of the API. It provides what we need right
now. Great work on the 2nd version of udunits.

I would be very interested in your thoughts on this package.

I'll ask him about sending you his email address.
