That as it may be, for the sort of things I can think of wanting to use
the GPFS API for, performance would be critical, and as such python
would not be an appropriate solution.

The two things I have in mind (and partly coded) are an mmsetfacl to
provide a useful command line tool for setting ACL's and one that can be
used on a directory recursively. The other is an mmfind but hooked into
the inode scan feature of GPFS so ypu get the speed of the policy engine
but in a simple command line for one off's.
