[Biopython-dev] Operations on kmers?

I've written a little library for k-mer based analyses, and eventually
decided to upload it to PyPI. Guess what? There are several modules for
that (https://pypi.python.org/pypi?%3Aaction=search&term=kmer&submit=search),
including my own (kmers). Is there a chance one of those can make it to
Biopython? It's usually better to have a singe universally available
library than a bunch of incompatiblble ones.
I'm willing to work on it, probably in cooperation with folks that made
other packages, but I don't have a slightest idea whether it's gonna be
accepted to Biopython. k-mers are still somewhat obscure, after all. If it
is, where, in your opinion, does it belong? A separate Bio.Kmers module, a
submodule of Bio.Statistics or Bio.Cluster? Something else?
