Python interface to bitcoin's JSON-RPC API

branch: master
AuthServiceProxy is an improved version of python-jsonrpc.

It includes the following generic improvements:

- HTTP connections persist for the life of the AuthServiceProxy object
- sends protocol 'version', per JSON-RPC 1.1
- sends proper, incrementing 'id'
- uses standard Python json lib

It also includes the following bitcoin-specific details:

- sends Basic HTTP authentication headers
- parses all JSON numbers that look like floats as Decimal


- change the first line of to point to the directory of your installation of python 2.*
- run

Note: This will only install bitcoinrpc. If you also want to install jsonrpc to preserve 
backwards compatibility, you have to replace 'bitcoinrpc' with 'jsonrpc' in and run it again.
