I agree that they probably won't fix this, but with Leopard, Apple has
gone out of their way to integrate the builtin python with PyObjC, the
new scripting bridge and Xcode.  The python.org binary doesn't have
those things, which could be a real barrier to some people.  I am
going to file a bug report.
