Just a small comment (aside from love your work :) :
	I just downloaded this package so we can start testing our app against it, but 
it doesn't find Python.h ... this is on a stock Debian Etch install.

$ python2.4-config --includes
-I/usr/include/python2.4 -I/usr/include/python2.4

	I'm no autotools expert, but it looks to me like it tries to build the test 
using $ac_cpp, which uses CPPFLAGS, not CFLAGS.

CPP='gcc -E'

	So it's not adding the include paths to the pre-processor flags.

	On another note, finding the online documentation isn't very easy.  I tend to 
find myself having to go back through your release emails to find the link. 
Perhaps this ought to be more clearly placed?
