http://code.google.com/p/python-zibopt does mixed integer programming,
i.e. linear prog + some integer constraints --
could that help ?
(I like its little language for separating a readable problem
description from solvers, number-crunching.
Is there a general-purpose framework for such,
"general-purpose" meaning > 1 user ?
Cf. wikipedia AMPL and APMonitor.)
