At least the command line interface do not support to file the redundancy information separately... it always creates a set of files, of which a definable count is necessary to recreate the source file. only one file can be processed at a time.

I don't know about the inner API as I am not python literate ... regards ede

I have not looked into zfec in detail yet, but the one downside seems to be that (and please correct me if I am wrong), it cannot be used to produce error correction data separate from the input data.

No, it can. zfec documentation talks about "primary blocks" and "secondary blocks". The "primary" ones are just the contents of the input data.
