Could "soon" at least be after this weekend?  We found a small  
configure issue at PyCon that forces me to build the installers on  
10.4 and I'd like to fix that before a next release and don't have  
time to seriously look into that before sunday.

FWIW. The issue is that printf("%zd") works correctly on OSX 10.5, but  
fails to print negative numbers correctly on 10.4. If you build the  
installer on 10.4 the resulting binary works fine on all OSX systems,  
if you build the installer on 10.5 the repr of itertools.count(-1) is  
wrong on 10.4 systems.
