Also, I have read the draft and I cannot see references to 64-bit binary packages. With the advent of Windows 7 and Mac OSX Snow Leopard, 64-bit are way more spread than before, so they would be a great thing to deliver, IMO.
True, however the situation is a bit ugly with OS-X -- python.org does not distribute 64 bit binaries at all, and Apple's Python is a bit weird in that regard. Also some key libraries (anything build on Carbon , such as wxPython) don't work on 64 bit.
That being said, a 32+64 bit build for the Apple supplied Python for OS-X 10.6 might be nice, though a bit of a niche market.
