I tested the Mac files on my iMac before releasing them, and they appeared
to work.  Perhaps they require Stuffit Expander 5?

This is not really a Python-related question, but what's the general
consensus on providing platform-specific archive formats?  I know there is
unzip on most (all?) UN*X platforms, WinZip can handle tar/gzipped files,
and Mac Stuffit Expander (at least version 5) can handle pretty much
whatever you throw at it.  I initially felt that it was friendlier to
provide separate archives for each platform, but perhaps it's more trouble
than it's worth?
