I made a start at an ARPACK wrapper, see
http://projects.scipy.org/scipy/scipy/ticket/231
and the short thread at scipy-dev
http://thread.gmane.org/gmane.comp.python.scientific.devel/5166/focus=5175

In addition to the wrapper there is a Python interface (and some tests).  
I don't know if the interface is like "eigs" - I don't use Matlab.

It will give you a few eigenvalues and eigenvectors for the standard 
eigenproblem (Ax=lx) for any type of A (symmetric/nonsymmetric, real/complex,
single/double, sparse/nonsparse).  

The generalized and shifted modes are not implemented.
I need to find some time (or some help) to get it finished.

Regards,
Aric
