What do you mean, not possible? On any system that supports shared
libraries, you can replace any static library with a shared library,
if you adjust the build process.

Of course, Python up-to-2.2 had no knobs to readily modify the build
process. Instead, you would need to edit the Makefile: add new
targets, add new compiler flags, add new linker flags. Debian has been
doing that for quite some time now.

In Python 2.3, there is an --enable-shared configure flag.
