Pure Python read/write support for ESRI Shapefile format

The Python Shapefile Library (pyshp) provides read and write support for the
ESRI Shapefile format.  The Shapefile format is a popular Geographic
Information System vector data format created by Esri.  For more information
about this format  please read the well-written "ESRI Shapefile Technical
Description - July 1998".  The Esri document describes the shp and shx file
formats.  However a third file format called dbf is also required.  This
format is documented on the web as the "XBase File Format Description" and is
a simple file-based database format created in the 1960's.  Both the Esri and
XBase file-formats are very simple in design and memory efficient which is
part of the reason the shapefile format remains popular despite the numerous
ways to store and exchange GIS data available today.
