How can one easily access Virtual Observatory data from within python, e.g. quick-and-easy name resolution or downloading of part of a catalog? 

It's hard for a non-expert to get a sense of the best way to go, especially for simpler scripts. Something like a Python equivalent of the VO command-line interface (http://iraf-nvo.noao.edu/vo-cli/downloads/index.html) would be great.
