Only tried on Python 3. I'm inserting raw byte versions of web-pages. I 
forget the exact details but I have a comment in my code to the above 
effect so I must have ended up bashing my head against it at some point. 
A zip/lzma compressed byte output doesn't need this wrapper though.

Thanks, I'll have to add that to the collection. I know when I was 
googling around for it on *nix I came across a bunch of different 
answers none of which seemed to work. Windows is a simple matter of 
replacing the right DLL (though again not really documented). I still 
have no idea how to do it on *nix but that's another thread.
