Note that a separate installation of pyshapelib isn't necessary for
Thuban as it contains a copy of it and the relevant shapelib files.

It's a normal Python module, so you can put any Python code in there. In
the specific case described in that README, if you have an extension in
a file myextension.py in a directory somewhere on the Python module
search path, thubanstart.py could be as simple as 

import myextension

Thuban automatically adds ~/.thuban to the Python path, so putting your
own module into ~/.thuban should suffice for a start.
