Thanks.... however, now when I try "from pysqlite2 import test" it
results in:

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "<stdin>", line 1, in ?
  File
"build/bdist.darwin-8.5.0-Power_Macintosh/egg/pysqlite2/test/__init__.py",
line 25, in ?

ImportError:

  Expected in: dynamic lookup

I now suspect that this may all be down to the version of sqlite3
installed as part of OS X 10.4. Some people report success when using
this version with pysqlite, others report failure.
