Auto CSS head styles to body styles?

What's that program that takes CSS styles defined in the head of an HTML document and applies them to each element's style attribute? It's for HTML email-making, where such a nonsensical thing is desirable.

I believe it was a command line program, and I believe it was written in Python. I've done a good bit of Googlin', and I'm starting to think I imagined the whole thing.

Please note that if you've been out of the HTML email business for a while, Outlook 2007 uses the freakin' MS Word HTML rendering engine, so much of your CSS may be for naught.
