i've gone through the process of checking out and building python as described in the devguide; it seems the python executable is indeed called python.exe under mac osx. i find this confusing.

a comment on the reason for this unusual suffix would be great, but an added "(sic!)" would already indicate this is not an erroneous mixup of OS names (as i initially assumed).
