It's of note that this installer patches your Mac OS X 10.3
installation of Python 2.3.0:
python2.3/lib-dynload/_AE.so 100755 7096/7096 64348
It's probably better to have its own local copy of this module instead,
perhaps used conditionally when/if you're using a version of Python
that adds the new features required.
Also, the extensions in this appscript installer weren't built with
PantherPythonFix, so they are tightly bound to the Python 2.3.0
installation. If they were built with a PantherPythonFix'ed
installation, then they would be compatible across all Python 2.3.x on
Mac OS X 10.3+.
% otool -Lv ./Library/Python/2.3/aem/send/PSN.so
(compatibility version 2.3.0, current version 2.3.0)
