I tried to post Digester to Ruby a while ago. However I discovered that
Digester best suits a language where a class can be introspected to find
its members and their types. This just isn't possible in Ruby, and I
presume it isn't possible in Python either. Without this Digester cannot
automatically deduce the type conversion to apply for the
SetPropertyRule etc.

You can find the current Ruby port here, but I'm not claiming it is
worth using, not that it's truly rubyish (it was my first attempt at a
Ruby app):

I don't know of any other ports of Digester to any other lanugage.
