Defaulting to a 32-bit build has several advantages. The first is that
the defaults match the binary installer on the python.org website, and
secondly there are still 3th-party libraries that don't work in 64-bit
mode (mostly GUI libraries, until recently Tk and wxWidgets wrapped
the Carbon libraries which are not available in 64-bit mode; AFAIK
both have betas that wrap the Cocoa libraries instead).
To mimick the system default you'd have to default to 32-bit on 10.4,
4-way universal on 10.5 and 3-way universal on 10.6, and that is
without considering deployment targets. All of those are available as
options, I'd prefer to keep it this way for now to keep things simple.

I know that, I wrote most of that file ;-).

I've committed a patch to the trunk and 2.6 that does this.
