Bug#812903: ITP: python-libxdo -- Python bindings for libxdo

Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist
Owner: Daniel Kahn Gillmor <dkg@fifthhorseman.net>

* Package name    : python-libxdo
  Version         : 0.1.1a
  Upstream Author : Samuele Santi <samuele@samuelesanti.com>
* URL             : https://github.com/rshk/python-libxdo
* License         : BSD
  Programming Lang: Python
  Description     : Python library for simulating X11 keyboard/mouse input (libxdo bindings)

Python bindings for libxdo, the X11 keyboard/mouse event
generator/simulator.  This is useful for writing scripts to manipulate
a running X11 session, or for writing test suites for GUI tools.

I aim to package this under the mantle of the python-modules team.

I'm hoping to replace python-xdo with this.  python-libxdo has the
following advantages over python-xdo:

 * covers much more of the libxdo API
 * ctypes, not compiled
 * supports python3 as well as python2
 * i'm not the upstream ;)
