This is related to the stuff I work on in my research.  Stuff in this area
is definitely welcome in biopython.  However, it's unclear to me how it can
be integrated.  (Someone please speak up if you know!)  The online MeSH
browser seems to be more human-oriented and not as useful for accessing via
a script.  However, the UMLS version requires a license.  I don't know if
there is free access to MeSH/UMLS information.
