I've made experimental alpha bindings for libbitcoin. Caveat emptor.

Program which connects to a bitcoin node and downloads the first 500 blocks.
from bitcoin import *
import time

net = network()
chandle = None

def receive_inv(inv_packet):
    print inv_packet
    for inventory in inv_packet.invs:
        print inventory.type, inventory.hash

def handle_send_getblocks(ec):
    if ec:
        # do something
        print ec

def create_getblocks_message():
    packet = getblocks()
    gen_block = genesis_block()
    print 'c'
    return packet

def handle_handshake(ec, host_id):
    if ec:
        # do something
        print ec
    chandle = host_id
    net.subscribe_inv(chandle, receive_inv)
    net.send_getblocks(chandle, create_getblocks_message(), handle_send_getblocks)

if __name__ == '__main__':
    handshake_connect(net, "localhost", 8333, handle_handshake)

Another hacked up example just to test everything:
from bitcoin import *
import time
i = net_addr()
i.ip_addr = [1, 2, 3]
print i.ip_addr
print inv_type.block
h = hash_digest([1, 2, 3])
h[12] = 110
print h[12]
vers = version()
vers.version = 100
vers.sub_version_num = "abc"
print vers
# from block 170
pubkey = data_chunk([0x04, 0x11, 0xdb, 0x93, 0xe1, 0xdc, 0xdb, 0x8a, 0x01, 0x6b, 0x49, 0x84, 0x0f, 0x8c, 0x53, 0xbc, 0x1e, 0xb6, 0x8a, 0x38, 0x2e, 0x97, 0xb1, 0x48, 0x2e, 0xca, 0xd7, 0xb1, 0x48, 0xa6, 0x90, 0x9a, 0x5c, 0xb2, 0xe0, 0xea, 0xdd, 0xfb, 0x84, 0xcc, 0xf9, 0x74, 0x44, 0x64, 0xf8, 0x2e, 0x16, 0x0b, 0xfa, 0x9b, 0x8b, 0x64, 0xf9, 0xd4, 0xc0, 0x3f, 0x99, 0x9b, 0x86, 0x43, 0xf6, 0x56, 0xb4, 0x12, 0xa3])
print len(pubkey)
print pubkey
print pubkey_to_address(pubkey)
print genesis_block().merkle
print 'Only', max_money(), 'bitcoins will ever exist'
print original_dialect()
s = script()
o = operation()
o.code = opcode.special
o.code = opcode.nop = data_chunk([0xde, 0xad, 0xbe, 0xef])
o = operation()
o.code = opcode.hash160
print s
tx = transaction()
print tx

n = network()

def foo(ec, hostid):
    if ec:
        print ec
    print 'connected', hostid

handshake_connect(n, "localhost", 8333, foo)


I'm not too knowledgeable on making bindings, so consider this an experiment.

There's also subvertx command line utilities (proof of concept using libbitcoin) for those looking for some more general utilities.

that sounds great. are there bindings to request the transaction history of a given adress?
