FYI, the starship which has ctypes homepage is down, but the downloads
are still available in the SF download section:

BTW: There seems to be a problem in IPython with unicode __doc__ strings;
this is on WinXP:

Python 2.5 (r25:51908, Sep 19 2006, 09:52:17) [MSC v.1310 32 bit (Intel)]
Type "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.

IPython 0.7.4.svn.r2120 -- An enhanced Interactive Python.
?       -> Introduction to IPython's features.
%magic  -> Information about IPython's 'magic' % functions.
help    -> Python's own help system.
object? -> Details about 'object'. ?object also works, ?? prints more.

In [1]: class X(object):
   ...:     u"the doc string"

In [2]: x = X()

In [3]: x??
