Would the example below help?

# kinit admin
Password for ad...@mkosek-fedora20.test:
[root@ipa ~]# python
Python 2.7.5 (default, Jun 25 2014, 10:19:55)

This works with FreeIPA 4.0. For older FreeIPA, you would need to switch
rpcclient attribute for xmlclient.

I admit we do not have the best developer documentation on how to do that. We
plan to do that in the future, so far we were focusing on other things.
