I would also like to know, I haven't seen any python GARCH so far.

I started to translate http://www.kevinsheppard.com/wiki/MFE_Toolbox
(BSD license) into python, but it is slow going and I'm running out of
Christmas break. The plan is to have a tested literal translation and
then to numpify/scipify it.

ETA: half a year.
