New python scripts for stake pool operators

I’ve just completed 2 new scripts, balance.py and tx.py on

balance.py computes the balance of a specific address (not of a complete wallet).
tx.py generates a tx.draft file for simple transactions.

Both scripts use cardano-cli inside and are supposed to be used on a block producer node. I’ve tested them on testnet. However, balance.py is safe to be used anyways.

Feedback is welcome. Especially since tx.py should evolve to change parameters and claiming rewards.

Actually, there’s 2 more scripts - one for claiming rewards (rewards.py) and one for managing pool parameters. I’ve also improved the transaction, so that fees will be lower than the original scripts. The new tx.py, etc. only use necessary UTXOs for transaction, thus making the CBOR smaller (fees are calculated using the number of bytes in the CBOR).

Unfortunately I could not test the 2 new ones on testnet - did not receive any rewards so far.
