This is a VERY common error that traps users regularly:

Could we extend that error message by a hint on installing the python- dev .rpm/.deb?
if sys.platform = "unix": msg += "\nYou probably need to install..."
Sure. Do you have a list of common package names needed for this ?
SuSE uses "python-devel".
