  Description     : Action Message Format support for Python

[Directly taken from upstream web, tweak as needed]

PyAMF provides Action Message Format (AMF) support for Python
that is compatible with the Flash Player. It includes integration 
with Python web frameworks like Django, Pylons, Twisted, and more.

The Adobe Integrated Runtime and Flash Player use AMF to communicate 
between an application and a remote server. AMF encodes remote 
procedure calls (RPC) into a compact binary representation that 
can be transferred over HTTP/HTTPS or the RTMP/RTMPS protocol. 
Objects and data values are serialized into this binary format, 
which increases performance, allowing applications to load data up
 to 10 times faster than with text-based formats such as XML or SOAP.

AMF 3, the default serialization for ActionScript 3.0, provides 
various advantages over AMF0, which is used for ActionScript 1.0 
and 2.0. AMF 3 sends data over the network more efficiently than AMF 0. 
AMF 3 supports sending int and uint objects as integers and supports 
data types that are available only in ActionScript 3.0, such as 
ByteArray, ArrayCollection, and IExternalizable.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
