I don't think it's maintained or mature: last time I checked, I  
couldn't get it to work (probably due to library changes), and there  
is not a lot of documentation nor comments.

I was actually thinking of writing a binding myself, to libEtPan!,  
which seems to have a well-documented and clean interface. I'm not  
sure how hard this is though. I've also looked a bit at the UW c- 
client, but I haven't seen any good examples of how to use it.
