It works for me on Windows 98 with Python 2.4.1, but only for a rather
simple "hello world" document:

\documentclass{article}
\author{Au. Thor}
\title{Title}
\date{\today}
\begin{document}
\maketitle
Hello World!
\end{document}

I didn't have the time to play with any more code since. It's not
unusual that you have to make a LaTeX document fit to the needs of a
converter in order to have it converted...

This should mean that it only worked with Python <2.5 before and was
adapted to work with Python >=2.5 now.
