MacPython is the Mac verion of Python, a high=level programming
language. MacPython runs on any MacOS from 8.1 to X, and comes

quicktime, appleevents, etc.

Highlights of this release:
- Types and classes are unified, so you can subclass builtin types

  producer/consumer-style programming.
- Accept both unix- and mac-style newlines
- Automatic garbage collection
- Better Carbon support (updated to Universal Headers 3.4) and better
  integration with OS X command line Python
- Better command-. handling
