Hi All,

    I am forwarding this to Kepler-dev in case anyone feels strongly 
about the need for the Python actor in the Kepler 1.0 release. Several 
people have requested Python support in Kepler in the past and the only 
real reason for not including it would seem to be lack of documentation. 
However, the actor could just be added to the repository and not 
included in the release, so not including it in the release is not a big
