Yeah, they are apparently in the tarball, though I thought that there
was an external (second) python bindings available.  Maybe that one got
merged into openbabel proper though.

http://openbabel.sourceforge.net/wiki/Python talks about the openbabel
and pybel modules, both seem to be included in the tarball:


I don't have a Windows machine to see what those .exe mentioned in the
wiki/Install contain.

On the other hand, we can probably remove/add one or the other python
module later on, it might be more important to get OpenBabel-2.1.1 into
