I have used the multi-distro package. This one:

I need multi-distro package, because we are running tests that require
the Alpha version of VirtualBox 4.1, and asking Klaus to compile Alpha
versions for every Linux distro is too much work for him.

But I have python 2.7.1 + python-dev package installed. (default on
Ubuntu 11.04)
So it is my understanding, that VBox python modules are being compiled
Is this the case?
