Bug Description

This might be a meta-bug, but Michael Giarlo's recent experience getting OpenSRF Python running for a Python-based service showed that some rough edges need to be filed off OpenSRF Python. Specifically:

  * install opensrf.py in BINDIR (perhaps under a different name like opensrf-python.py to match opensrf-perl.pl?)
  * set default directories in opensrf.py based on autoconf vars
  * remove the requirement of the -p flag for opensrf.py
  * deal with parsing comments in opensrf.xml / opensrf_core.xml
  * teach osrf_ctl.sh to handle Python-based services
  * include osrf/apps/example.py in opensrf.xml / opensrf_core.xml if --enable-python ?
  * more docs

We've made a lot of progress!

  * http://svn.open-ils.org/trac/OpenSRF/changeset/2055, opensrf.py is now installed in BINDIR and osrf_ctl.sh is aware of Python-based services

  * http://svn.open-ils.org/trac/OpenSRF/changeset/2054, comments in opensrf.xml no longer disturb opensrf.py

  * http://svn.open-ils.org/trac/OpenSRF/changeset/2067, opensrf.py now has reasonable defaults (defined by autoconf) for the -p and -f flags.

  * http://svn.open-ils.org/trac/OpenSRF/changeset/2053, osrf/apps/example.py is now installed
