https://docs.python.org/2/library/crypto.html
https://docs.python.org/3/library/crypto.html

This language has a number of issues:
- Crypto isn't just for "Hardcore cypherpunks" anymore, it's a necessary component of a great many software projects
- PyCrypto isn't maintained by A.M. Kuchling any longer
- (IMO) it's no longer the recommended library for cryptography in Python
- The page should probably also point people towards the ssl module.
