Hmmm, let's look into <pythonlib>/site-packackes, That's what I always 
have installed:

- pysqlite
- Numeric
- mxExtensions (mostly for mxDateTime)
- ClientForm
- ClientCookie
- pycrypto

Most of these are probably not elegible due to license issues but I'd 
love to see SQLite support added to Python-out-of-the-box.

Also, when on windows, I always install the ActiveState distro because 
it comes with the win23 extensions and more useful documentation. Maybe 
there should be rather a separate "add-on-packs" distribution?

I think, this would be mostly useful for developers though. With 
solutions like p2exe and python eggs becoming more widely used, caring 
about what is installed and what not, shouldn't be such an issue anymore.
