Hello All,

  I am a new user to riak and want to use the python client.

  First I installed the riak server and walked through a few of the steps 
  in the README steps at the text:
  "We are now ready to start the Riak Client:"
  it failed at the command:
  <ok,C} = riak:client_connect(RiakNode) with the error 
  exception error undefined function client_connect)

  I then tried the 
 "building a development environment" web page and got farther
  to the point that I could load a file and see it via web page.  

  I hg'd riak-python-client and python installed it.
  The README said that there would be documentation in the docs directory.
  There is no docs directory.
  I googled riak python examples, and found none.

  So now I have this python "client" code and have no idea how to use it.

  Any help with examples for using the python client to Riak?

  thanks in advance
