Using GOCR with Python

I am developing something that now needs an OCR engine to analyze some text.

I am thinking of developing it in a way that the user can specify which engine to use.
I am focusing firstly on Gocr, so, I have an image loaded using Python's PIL module. I do some clipping and then want to call Gocr to analyse the clip I generated. The clipped image is not on HD when I do it since I didn't want to save it to my HD, I just need to run Gocr through the clip and get the resulting text from it.

Anyone got some ideas?

Hey, jayro. I have the same issue with some Python extension modules only supporting file based graphics. I let you know what I can dig up.

What format is the image in memory, by the way?
