if I find the time I'll try to upgrade pil to 1.1.3 for the next (2.3) 
MacPython release. But that could be a while off...

If you use OSX unix-Python (a.k.a. MachoPython) there should be no 
problem building pil from source yourself (assuming you have the OSX 
developer tools). But: if you want a fully functional W you'll probably 
have to build Python from the CVS sources (or, again, wait for 2.3).
