FYI, I used to write a patch to add support for camellia block cipher 
for pycrypto 2.0.1:
I do not have much time to maintain it, though.
It includes new BSD-licensed source code of camellia block cipher 
distributed by NTT at:
The same codes are in Linux, FreeBSD, OpenSSL, GnuTLS, NSS (Firefox), 
and so on.

I hope this patch will help you write your new patch.

Thank you,
