In Eldarion's opinion the Rackspace libraries for Python currently available simply do not meet our standards. We wanted a great API and excellent Python support.
This project has been extracted from working code in Gondor. However, we've been removing lots of cruft and improving the API even more! The code is not 100% complete nor does it cover all the services Rackspace provides yet. We are working on extracting more code and making it complete.
