There should be no need to copy anything. Just run
wmii -r python/wmiirc

You can put your configuration in ~/.wmii/, or
otherwise copy /etc/wmii/python/ to ~/.wmii/
and modify it, if you prefer (though I don't recommend it).

I have no idea what pywmii is.

I think conventional languages are for the birds.  They're just
extensions of the von Neumann computer, and they keep our noses in the
dirt of dealing with individual words and computing addresses, and
doing all kinds of silly things like that, things that we've picked up
from programming for computers; we've built them into programming
languages; we've built them into Fortran; we've built them in PL/1;
we've built them into almost every language.
