python/*: Moved a lot of Python stuff here
The criteria for whether something "belongs" in Development or Libraries or Python or ... is admittedly arbitrary. As a general rule, if it could be either Libraries or Python, it's Python. Otherwise, pick one and we'll go from there... Signed-off-by: Robby Workman <>

+dnspython is a DNS toolkit for Python. It supports almost all record
+types. It can be used for queries, zone transfers, and dynamic updates.
+It supports TSIG authenticated messages and EDNS0.
+dnspython provides both high and low level access to DNS. The high
+level classes perform queries for data of a given name, type, and
+class, and return an answer set. The low level classes allow direct
+manipulation of DNS zones, messages, names, and records.
+Optionally, dnspython can use pycrypto for DNSSEC functionality.
