I am desperately trying to create/reincarnate a python actor.  I see a
general scripting actor as absolutely crucial to kepler.

Please somebody help with general guideline on how to make a custom
actor.  The current documentation is out of date.  For example, how
are all the lsid numbers generated?  How is the xml script generated?
What properties are neccesary?  How to package a kar file?  What is
neccesary?  A single example from scratch would go a long way.

There is a jython actor in the ptolemy source: what would be the
simplest way to revive this actor?  There should be no technical
reason to not have this actor as the RExpression actor is similar but
more complex.

I am really needing this actor, if anybody has *any* help whatsover I
would appreciate it.
