[maemo-developers] [maemo-developers] PyMaemo and modules left out.

I am starting to develop a middleware for Maemo with Python. However, there 
are numerous python modules I'd like to utilize in my work, e.g. xmlrpc 
server side. This is only available in the SDK, I realize. What is the 
reason for having some modules only there? I mean, I understand that they 
are heavy and generate overhead, but doesn't this only make developing with 
Python harder? Since the scripts / code one develops, won't work directly 
in the device? Couldn't find answer to this..and I am quite unexperienced 
with both, python and Maemo anyway..

And furthermore, if the efficiency and efficiency of the software is not my 
greatest concern, is it a big sin just grabbing the libs / sources and just 
importing them to the device? Or will I have some other problems if I do 
that? Any opinions? (Or, knowledge even;)
