Well, the there are templates for writing Cocoa-python apps and using one with a minor tweak, I was able to build an empty Cocoa-python app that ran (it displayed a window). One thing I noticed was that evening the default Python on my Mac is 64-bit, XCode only gave me options of i386 and ppc. When I build a straight Cocoa app, the 64-bit option is there.

FWIW, the app was using the default Python install (2.6.1) which  had pyobjc already built, so I didn't have to mess with that.
