[Spice_discussion] Python support for SPICE

I’ve been using 
to drive all my visualization work where I need SPICE kernels.  

The functionality is rather basic for accessing coordinates, etc but it does work.  Seems to have not been developed much since about two years ago.

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?
