Your python install lacks the socket module. On Solaris this usually
means something exciting to do with your SSL install. Who installed

In many ways, it's a dull language, borrowing solid old concepts
from many other languages & styles: boring syntax, unsurprising
semantics, few automatic coercions, etc etc. But that's one of
the things I like about it. -- Tim Peters, 16 Sep 93
