Python needs it. This is not so strange. The annyoing thing is, that other
libs, like gtk, often have a gtk-config command you can call, to help you
determine these sort of things - Python has no such thing. (At least I
haven't found it :-)
I guess we could write one - but that does not solve our problem with old
versions of Python

I think it is more common to extend Python, than to embed it. I knew
nothing about Python (apart from the name) a week ago, so I may be wrong
