pysqlite added to the batteries included list?

Anyway we can add this to the batteries included list for Python 2.7? I wasn't able to install it. I'm getting the following error:

10:24 ~ $ easy_install-2.7 --user pysqlite Searching for pysqlite Reading Reading Reading Best match: pysqlite 2.6.3 Downloading Processing pysqlite-2.6.3.tar.gz Writing /tmp/easy_install-xlL0mv/pysqlite-2.6.3/setup.cfg Running pysqlite-2.6.3/ -q bdist_egg --dist-dir /tmp/easy_install-xlL0mv/pysqlite-2.6.3/egg-dist-tmp-PmaDnR unable to execute gcc: No such file or directory error: Setup script exited with error: command 'gcc' failed with exit status 1

sqlite3 is built into all the Python versions we have. You can see the docs here. Is there something that pysqlite does that the built-in doesn't do?

According to this page, it looks like they're the same.
