Please.  Tell me what is wrong with:

Maybe my English isn't clear enough to you?  "any part of a python's
module", so we're talking about a single module here right?  "is arch
specific", pretty clear.  "the entire thing", thing being the module.
"has to go into sitearch", correct, has to go into the arch specific
dir.  Be that /usr/lib in i386 or /usr/lib64 on x86_64.  Please, tell me
where I'm failing English here, as it is my native language and I'd
really like to know.
