What about the bootstrap problem (Package Manager vs. PyObjC)?
You planning to make PyObjC one of MacPython 2.4's "batteries" ?
I'd also like to mention that there are some pretty *serious security

priority than making it pretty. We need to start a new thread
discussing this.. is this the proper SIG for it?
