Ok, I won't. I was just guessing based on what I'd seen elsewhere.

That's too bad. Is there a reason for it? I'd volunteer to work on
modifying distutils so that it can build a .dylib, but I am not an
expert on library formats. I don't really know the difference
between a .so and a .dylib, except that one of them works and the
other doesn't. Can someone point me in the direction of a good
reference on the topic?
