[Biopython-dev] Python GO database interface development

I was wondering if there is any ongoing development of a Python based
interface to the GO (Gene Ontology) database.  I'm in need of one, and
don't particularly want to reinvent the wheel for this.

If not, I was thinking of basing my code off of the Perl API with only
some of the core functionality, e.g. an interface to a local database and
perhaps an interface to AMIGO, though I'm not sure I'll be needing that.

Does anyone have experience with the Perl API?  Are there features that
are lacking / could be improved in a newer, Python based interface?
