Py-EC: Easy and efficient elliptic curves for Python

In Python, dealing directly with the OpenSSL library (through PyElliptic) easily becomes a hassle with the use of C pointers and string buffers.

To make things easier, I decided to make a wrapper for PyElliptic to make the manipulation of elliptic curves and points more Pythonic. The result is called Py-EC, is available on GitHub, and licensed under the MIT license (except for the part from PyElliptic, which is licensed under GPLv3).

Especially point addition and multiplication is way easier, as you can see in the examples on GitHub.
