I sent a patch to the Python guys to implement the protocol-independent
multicast socket API a good while back. It takes a long time to get
feedback unless you're "in the loop" with the current development
version of Python and know the developers.
Adding support to Python for socket options itself isn't terribly
difficult -- the socket module is reasonably lightweight C glue code --
it just takes time to jive with their development process, it seems.
Having said that, their reference platform(s) already implement these
particular socket options, so I guess it may just be down to lack of
interest/time, which does happen...
