I think you will find that you need many other functions than just
horizontal to equatorial: the transformation depends on LST, for
example, which you will need to convert to or from GMT, and on
latitude/longitude; you'll probably want to convert various
coordinates between sexagesimal and radians or degrees; you may even
find galactic coordinates useful. Just go with something like a python
wrapper for SLALIB.
If you really want just those two functions, if it's really essential
to keep dependencies down at the cost of debugging pain, you can write
such a function fairly easily by converting to a 3D vector
representation and back.
