Thanks, Maurice, for investigating the python1.5 possibility further.
Gary, do you think it would be straightforward to get plplotcmodule.i
working for python-1.5 or do you think we should just forget about
python-1.5 support and only support python-2?
From your previous messages, I notice you have gotten plplot to work for
RedHat. Was that for their python2 variant?
