	Thank you. I looked briefly at python some time ago for
something else and liked what I saw so I will give it another
try for this project. The serial communications are not terribly
complex, but they are at 57600 baud or more so all the low-level
timing has to work or one gets absolutely nothing but garbage
and flaky performance.

	Again, thanks for your response.
