The 1-Wire bus is a cheap low-speed bus for devices like weather
sensors, access control, etc. It can be attached to your system via
serial, USB, I2C, and other interfaces.
Python bindings for the OWFS 1-Wire support library have been produced
with SWIG and allow access to libow functions from Python code.

* remove src/scripts/windows/libdns_sd.dll from the tarball. This
windows DLL is mDNSResponder-107.6 precompiled with a patch
applied. But mDNSResponder-107.6 sources are not included in this package
and the patch in available in upstream CVS (but not the released tarball).
Upstream will probably remove this file in the next release.
