API for Lets-Chat open source chat server (https://github.com/sdelements/lets-chat)

This is an API wrapper written for [Lets-Chat](https://github.com/sdelements/lets-chat) in Python. It offers high-level conveniences for connecting to and interacting with a Lets-Chat server, including reading, posting, uploading and downloading files, and querying user data. It could form the foundation of a neat Python bot for Lets-Chat, or as an adaptor for providing integration services at server-side.
It’s still a work-in-progress but most of the critical stuff is working as intended, and I’d consider it useful as-is. However, the “API of the API” is not yet frozen, and future pushes to this repo may further integrate the output of methods to wrap server data in higher-level abstractions.. So, caveat emptor for another 48 hours or so.
When it’s “ready” I’ll add an “examples” folder with things like dice-bots for games, twitter scrapers, etcetera; at that point I’m unlikely to fundamentally change anything without bumping a major version number.
