MissingPy appears to be a set of data types which implement MissingH
classes using the Python library. It has only a minimal binding to
libpython, enough to implement its class instances but not enough for
general-purpose use of libpython.

I wrote this package so I could benchmark Python modules using
Criterion, with an eye towards writing extension modules in Haskell,
so it has many more data types and computations available.
