Hmm, as I see it this patch would have to be in 1.5.2 to be
of any use for the problem mentioned in the subject line:
the 1.5 extension links against python15.dll and
thus calls the Py_InitModule() of that DLL, not the one in
python20.dll which would have the logic below.
Anyway, it's a good start for future versions of Python.
