Hmm... maybe I'm just confused about how this stuff works. You don't
require a Python package name, you require the more abstract name. But
case insensitive. So require("wsgi-utils") or require("WSGI_Utils")
works, but require('wsgiutils') doesn't. Since require('sqlobject')
worked (even though the package name is SQLObject) I had become confused
So, not a bug. But definitely confusing.
