Looks interesting. Note, however, that the version of check you are  
using is rather outdated, probably has quite a few bugs that were  
fixed since 2004. Note also that the XML format of the validator is  
deprecated in the current version and will be taken out in the next  
version.

Would you be interested in making a python module to access the  
validator through its API? There already is a perl module for this,  
made by Struan Donald.

(Hello, Struan! you may want to change the default from XML to soap,  
as the XML output is deprecated). It would be great if there were  
more libraries to access it:

Thank you
