[AstroPy] Photometry Package

Hi all,

About photometry tools in Python: Some time ago, I wrote a
wrapper around SEXtractor to easily read sextractor catalogs,
and to transparently call sextractor on a set of FITS frames,
and get the detected stars without direct manipulation of
the the SEXtractor output files.

It is just a wrapper module, not a real photometry package,
but it may prove useful to do some simple star detection and
photometry (it was useful for me ;-) ).
Files are attached (I hope it will pass through the mailing-list).

Cheers,

Laurent
