The Solar Orbiter project is planning on using SPICE kernels for their orbit and 
attitude files.  Solar scientists have traditionally used IDL for their data 
analysis, and SPICE is well supported in IDL.  However, there's a desire in a 
number of teams to start using Python instead.  What's the status of 
incorporating the SPICE software into Python?
