I got the OpenDX Python wrapper from Randall Hopper and asked him why the .so wrapping the DX library ends up not int he package directory but in $exec_prefix/lib/python/site-packages.
If you name an extension "foo" (no dots) it winds up in site-packages/foo.so.
I feel that it would nicer to have the .so along with all other files of the package in $exec_prefix/lib/python/site-packages/DX.
Then the extension should be named "DX.foo" -- IOW, the package of an extension is unrelated to the package of any pure Python modules in the same distribution, unless you explicitly make them the same. (This is a feature, but I don't think it's documented yet.)
