Python module for working with a sudden motion sensor on Linux

Hi everyone,

I am looking for a python module or something similar which makes use
of the capabilities of the kernel module applesmc to provide support
for the sudden motion sensor in Apple hardware. It should be something
like this:

Would it make sense to look for a generic accelerometer module or do I
have to use something specific?

Thanks for your help in advance!
