[Pythonmac-SIG] Seeking feedback: PyMod 0.1

Still beating away at the new HTMLTemplate docs, I'm afraid, so
appscript 0.5.0 will be sometime next week now. However, something I
have gotten around to finishing this week is a preview release of my
simple AppleSpaghetti Studio-based GUI tool for building and
installing downloaded distutils packages:
The name sucks (suggestions?), and there's no documentation or nice
icon yet, but it appears to do the job ok and should be
self-explanatory. Works with both setup.py and *.tar.gz files and
supports multi-item drag-n-drop, file chooser and direct input; runs
distutils via Terminal.app in background.
Issues I've noted so far:
1. The drag-n-drop support and file chooser dialog could be a bit
more discriminating in what they accept.
2. Direct input currently only works with full posix paths; it'd be
nice if understood paths starting with ~/ and ~name/ as well.
Please let me know what you think.
