I went to a link on the Csounds.com page (documentation) which led me to the “One Laptop Per Child” site. Apparently Csound (since it is open source) is one of the available assets in that project. The best part about this is that they have started some elementary documentation in wiki form.
And another page which talks about controlling Csound with Python.
Besides, if you are not yet familiar with the OLPC project (www.laptop.org) this is a good place to start.
