Thanks for replay!
I tried pytidylib, and have same issue with memory leak, unfortunately I 
couldn't report bug to, because, tidylib is self patched by one c 
programmer, but problem, is that he have no more time for it.
After day on playing with ampoule, I got it working :) But I run into 
another problem, AMP value length is limited to 64kb. Seems its a struct 
pack limitation. Probably I could split message into chunks <64kb each 
and feed to amp something like: pp.doWork(Tidy, html={'chunk1':  data1, 
'chunk2':  data2...} )
or maybe there is more easy/clean way?
