The work progressed faster than expected, it was surprisingly easy to convert 
C++ into Python. All C++ code is gone now and this branch has been merged on 
master. Few things that should be noted before using this:

- You will need the Python module for libvoikko from master branch of
  corevoikko (libvoikko.py).
- Only the case where python-libvoikko and libvoikko are installed as
  system libraries is supported at the moment. Support for standalone
  extensions will come later (including multi platform extensions, these
  were not generally supported before).
