python: creating excel workbook and dumping csv files as worksheets

I have few csv files which I would like to dump as new worksheets in a excel workbook(xls/xlsx).
How do I achieve this?

Googled and found 'pyXLwriter' but it seems the project was stopped.
While Im trying out 'pyXLwriter' would like to know are there any alternatives/suggestions/modules?

Many Thanks.

[Edit]

Here is my solution: (anyone has much leaner, much pythonic solution? do comment. thx)

import glob
import csv
import xlwt
import os

wb = xlwt.Workbook()


for filename in glob.glob("c:/xxx/*.csv"):
(f_path, f_name) = os.path.split(filename)
(f_short_name, f_extension) = os.path.splitext(f_name)
ws = wb.add_sheet(str(f_short_name))
spamReader = csv.reader(open(filename, 'rb'), delimiter=',',quotechar='"')
row_count = 0
for row in spamReader:
for col in range(len(row)):
ws.write(row_count,col,row[col])
row_count +=1

wb.save("c:/xxx/compiled.xls")

print "Done"

Answer

Not sure what you mean by "much leaner, much pythonic" but you certainly could spruce it up a bit:

import glob, csv, xlwt, os
wb = xlwt.Workbook()
for filename in glob.glob("c:/xxx/*.csv"):
    (f_path, f_name) = os.path.split(filename)
    (f_short_name, f_extension) = os.path.splitext(f_name)
    ws = wb.add_sheet(f_short_name)
    spamReader = csv.reader(open(filename, 'rb'))
    for rowx, row in enumerate(spamReader):
        for colx, value in enumerate(row):
            ws.write(rowx, colx, value)
wb.save("c:/xxx/compiled.xls")
