  Description     : American fuzzy loop for Python

Python module to enable American Fuzzy Loop [1] for Python code. Fuzzying
or fuzz testing is a method to confront programs with a multitude of
non standard resp. unexpected inputs to discover weaknesses and bugs [2].
doc/trophy-case.rst lists a couple of already detected bugs.

That would belong into PAPT.
