I suspect it will be exactly as today, i.e. a universal build with 64 
bits. I have not followed closely the discussion on python-dev on that 
topic, but I believe python 2.7 sill contain 64 bits as an arch.

Snow Leopard.

pkg does not have a uninstaller - I don't think Apple provides one, 
that's a known limitation of Mac OS X installers (although I believe 
there are 3rd party ones)

Maybe the spacing function is wrong on PPC. The underlying is highly 
architecture dependent.
