citeproc-js and Python

Just a bit of news to report.

The full set of tests for citeproc-js are now taking 30 seconds to run

require re-“compiling” for every transaction. This morning I hit pay

This bridge provides enough support to load the processor code to a
Python object, feed input to it, and get back rendered strings. A few
details need to be worked out, but it should be a fairly short step
from here to a simple demo web service such as panyansan has

This little discovery has cheered me up a bit, so I thought I would
share it with the group.
