Using Yahoo! Term Extractor web service with Python

Yesterday I was listening Van Lindberg's talk in PyCon US 2011 about Patent Mining. In his talk he mentioned about the Yahoo! Term Extractor Web Service. Before some times I heard that the service is not available now. Again I checked the web site and found that it is working now. I just played with the web service using a simple python script. Soon after seeing that it is working fine i created a dirty Python API for the web service. I am sharing code and documentation here
Code:

Sample :

After finishing the work I searched in the net and found that some similar scripts are available already :-(
