cool - well done.

How did you install it? not sure what "standard" is. The build is
supposed to setup distutils to do the right thing, and I'm pretty sure
it does with the binaries from python.org.

I will note that unless you want to re-package (i.e. with py2app) and
distribute to folks with old machines, you probably don't need to
support way back to 10.3 -- the "intel build" on python.org is set up
for 10.5 and greater, and may avoid this issue.
