As far as I can see, the only possible shortcoming of the patch is that it restores the current behavior with a 2-way fat ppc/i386 build with 10.4u (i.e. the way python.org installers are currently built); that is, you would still not be able to use "arch" to select PPC-emulation on an Intel machine when a 10.4 SDK build is installed on a 10.5 or later Intel system. That's no different than what we have today and I don't know of any demand for that feature. There are other fairly easy ways around it, if really necessary. But perhaps I'm overlooking something. On the other hand, I don't see anything wrong with going the weak linking route (thanks for the pointer, Martin), either, other than the additional effort and complexity.
