    The python implementation does not have that method defined.  You can do
this in approximately one one in python.

Note: This is pseudo code but you should get the gist.
points_out = [ listener.transformPoint("target_frame",
PointStamped(point_cloud.header, p).point for p in point_cloud.points]

If you're worried about efficiency you can also use lookupTransform and
multiply the matrix.
