I don't know what you mean by "UNIX" binary distributions: each UNIX
has its own sets of horrors in the distribution arena. Personally, I
don't care what we do about RPMs, since I'm not a Red Hat user. However,
this should probably be more Red Hat's job then ours. Debian, on the
other hand, would probably do this much better then Python-Dev can,
without gratutitous Tcl/Tk installations. For other unices, most people
install from sources anyway, which mostly means I should get off my butt
and start working on the Sumo interpreter.

I don't know how to break this to you, but you're not the average computer
user <wink>.
