Python wrapper for the GNUTLS library

This package provides a high level object oriented wrapper around libgnutls, as
well as low level bindings to the GNUTLS types and functions via ctypes. The
high level wrapper hides the details of accessing the GNUTLS library via ctypes
behind a set of classes that encapsulate GNUTLS sessions, certificates and
credentials and expose them to python applications using a simple API.

The package also includes a Twisted interface that has seamless intergration
with Twisted, providing connectTLS and listenTLS methods on the Twisted reactor
once imported (the methods are automatically attached to the reactor by simply
importing the GNUTLS Twisted interface module).

The high level wrapper is written using the GNUTLS library bindings that are
made available via ctypes. This makes the wrapper very powerful and flexible as
it has direct access to all the GNUTLS internals and is also very easy to
extend without any need to write C code or recompile anything.
