Thanks for the pointer to Alexander's posting. I wasn't aware of any
issues with ctypes and SELinux. I usually prefer Cython, C or cffi over
ctypes myself. For simple tasks ctypes works good enough, though.

python-kdcproxy uses ctypes bindings for libkrb5 to parse
/etc/krb5.conf. It runs in mod_wsgi, too. I haven't seen or heard about
issues with SELinux. Maybe the bug has been resolved? I'll keep an eye open.
