Really, a third library for python? Yes. An emphatic yes.

The first iteration of pycontrol (pc1) was based on the zsi library, which hasn’t been updated in years and was abandoned with the development of the second iteration, pycontrol v2 (pc2), which switched to the active and well-maintained suds library.

Bigsuds, like pycontrol v2, is also based on the suds library.

The big red button, while it is supposed to be easy to see, is easily missed. I do not know why.

Does this work for Python 3.4.1? I've tried to install for this version of Python, and I keep getting errors. If this is available, can someone provide installation instructions on this? Thank you very much. Demaster

Thank you for uploading to pypi! -- this makes it much easier to install. Would you consider hosting the source code on GitHub so that the community can more easily contribute fixes and improvements?
