Sigh... Don't wait for me to update the Mac-specific files: I've 
messed up the developer tools on my system. It's now a mix between 
and gcc3, and I keep running into problems. Reverting to gcc3.1 also
doesn't seem to work. My home system has a virgin 10.2 partition, but 
away tonight so I won't have the chance to build and test anything
(and I assume tomorrow-morning-European is too late, right?). I'm 99%
sure that just changing the version numbers in the .plist and .strings 
won't break anything, but without testing I don't want to chance it.

Eventually these files need to be generated (we have a plistlib module
for that), and the same goes for the accompanying .strings files.
