Only tried on Python 3. I'm inserting raw byte versions of web-pages. I
forget the exact details but I have a comment in my code to the above
effect so I must have ended up bashing my head against it at some point.
A zip/lzma compressed byte output doesn't need this wrapper though.

Thanks, I'll have to add that to the collection. I know when I was
googling around for it on *nix I came across a bunch of different
answers none of which seemed to work. Windows is a simple matter of
replacing the right DLL (though again not really documented). I still
have no idea how to do it on *nix but that's another thread.
