## Simple Encryption for Python 2.7

Thanks to https://github.com/d10n the simple-crypt library now works with
Python 2.7 as well as 3.

When I originally wrote simple-crypt, it was intended as a "poor man's
keyczar", which didn't exist for Python 3.  My plan was to retire simple-crypt
when keyczar moved to 3.

But it seems there's a real demand for simple-crypt, as something simpler than
keyczar.  Now, to some extent, I think that's people being lazy.  They
*should* use keyczar, even if it's more work.  But maybe that's not
everything.  And people continue to re-implement this kind of code, getting it
hopelessly wrong (see regular questions on StackOverflow).  So simple-crypt is
staying, and expanding...

I forgot to link to the library.  But

pip install simple-crypt

should be all you need.

Anyway, pypi - http://pypi.python.org/pypi/simple-crypt
and github - https://github.com/andrewcooke/simple-crypt
