Hear hear.

Everytime I see a pathname I groan out loud.  Does that mean I'm too 
wussy to be a programmer?   Maybe ;)  but there are plenty of potential 
users (call us the matlab crowd) who feel the same way.    I'd much 
rather just grab a binary installer from a website than manage some 
giant registry.  The appearance of python .mpkg bundles on the mac has 
been a blessing.
