Maybe this could go in 'python-crypto.scm'?

No articles in synopses please :-)

Also, s/SSL/TLS.

Can you try to turn this into a full sentence?  E.g. "M2crypto is a
library for ...".

You can use @enumerate here to make it look better on and guix
package --search.  Although maybe the format from is better
(sans marketing language):

M2Crypto is the most complete Python wrapper for OpenSSL featuring RSA, DSA,
DH, EC, HMACs, message digests, symmetric ciphers (including AES); SSL
functionality to implement clients and servers; HTTPS extensions to Python's
httplib, urllib, and xmlrpclib; unforgeable HMAC'ing AuthCookies for web
session management; FTP/TLS client and server; S/MIME; M2Crypto can also be
used to provide SSL for Twisted. Smartcards supported through the Engine

At least make sure the output from `guix package --search` looks nice :)
(and that guix lint is happy, of course)

I believe this is "expat" since it does not contain the advertisement
