Hi Mahadev,

Yes, you'll need the Python development headers installed. For yum-based 
systems these are packaged in python-devel. These are a dependency for building 
the module, but not installing it. I'm not sure if adding ant rules to 
automatically download the package is the right thing to do, as people often 
like to manage those things themselves, and version matching will be complex. I 
should at least add a warning to the readme. 

I think that the module will build correctly against 2.3 (and I'll be really 
interested to hear about your experiences when you get Python.h installed), 
however it certainly won't build against anything earlier than that (as PyGIL* 
were introduced in 2.3 which we need to get callbacks working). I don't use 
many fancy features, so I hope to be safe. I've built it against 2.5.1 here, 
and have a 2.6 system I can try. I expect 3.0 might have changed the API 
though, so I doubt the module will work there.
