 I have revamped the Python interface to the Varnish management port into a
 more robust application. I have written a new module (python-varnish) and
 have posted it on github. Here are some of the features:

  * Uses `telnetlib` instead of raw sockets
  * Implements `threading` module
  * Can run commands across multiple Varnish instances
  * More comprehensive methods, closely matching the management API
 (purge_*, vcl_*, etc.)
  * Unittests

 The code is available at [http://github.com/justquick/python-varnish

 This implementation is currently in use in production for
 [http://www.washingtontimes.com The Washington Times]

 It is part of an upcoming release of a project of mine using this module
 in conjunction with [http://www.djangoproject.com the django web

 Python-Varnish is under the New BSD license and I would be willing to
 commit this module into your trunk.
