Default Re: libsvm and Python

I would like to check some very basic question to see if i getting it right.
It seems that there are changes in the Python interface.
I have seen in the Web some old examples using the following import statement in Python. But I cannot use this import statement (Python 2.73, libsvm 3.12).
Any help about finding more info is really appreciated
There is a readme file in the directory which does provide documentation on the interface. I switched to the scikit-learn package which has better documentation and several examples (and is faster too - at least out of the box). It is based on libsvm. I am using ubuntu so I do not know if they are issues with using this package in a windows environment.
