Ah. I now realise that I didn't tell everything. I'm building the core Python
as a framework bundle (giving all the advantages of easy install, etc), but
I'm not building the extension modules as plugin bundles. They're plain old
.dylib shared libs.
The core framework bundle already gives me all the advantages I want
(relocatability from /Library to ~/Library by the user, self-containedness,
version control, sharing between various apps such as the command line tool
and the fullblown application, etc). Adding plugin bundles didn't seem worth
the effort, and indeed your message seems to indicate it's not the right way
