[kepler-dev] Python actors in Kepler

Hi All,

    I just added a $KEPLER/demos/Python/ directory to Kepler that 
contains 2 example workflows from Ptolemy that illustrate the use of the 
Python Script actor (since the Python actor code is now in the head of CVS).

    The Python actor actually uses the Java implementation of Python 
(i.e. Jython). Jython is not only an implementation of Python, but also 
a powerful scripting language for the Java code used in building 
Kepler/Ptolemy. I can see a number of potential uses in Kepler and I 
hope to add additional examples later. Input from other Kepler users 
would be appreciated.

    Whether these examples are included in the 1.0 Kepler release is up 
to those preparing the release.
