I appreciate the efforts to implement python bindings for ctdb client
interfaces.  However, I fail to understand the motivation behind this
work.  Is there a requirement from some applications to have a python
interface to CTDB?  Or do you have some other plans?

In the past, Martin and I had considered developing python bindings
for client interfaces.  The motivation there was to rewrite the ctdb
tool in python. However, we never got around to doing that.

Without a good motivation for python bindings to ctdb,  I would be
reluctant to add more code to CTDB that needs to be maintained
