pymathema, a Python tool for evaluating MathML

Lately I've been learning the programming language Python, and I've really been enjoying it. In particular, as a dynamic language (i.e., having loose types), it's really well-suited for mathematical tools. (Having sets and tuples as native types doesn't hurt, either.)

I started creating a MathML-Content evaluator in Python, with an extension for Names on Nodes which implements phyloreferencing expressions. As part of this I am working on Version 2.0 of the Names on Nodes MathML Definitions, which will expand upon the current ones.

Basic functionality is pretty much complete, although there are some niceties to add. If you'd like to check it out and maybe collaborate, have a look here: PYMATHEMA.
