I'm not sure I follow you here.  We did make substantial changes to
the setup.py.  The changes allow a single binary install to be created
from the setup script; the old version would create several different
installers for the individual components of ZODB.

But Guido never made any changes to support Codewarrior.  He did make
a couple of changes to make bsddb3Storage optional, but those changes
have been preserved in the current version.  (I'm sure here; I checked
the CVS logs.)

Are you thinking of some other setup.py or some other project?

Mac compatibility would be nice, but we need to rely on third-party
contributions for it.  None of us have or use Macs, so we've got zero
chance of getting it right.  If you could at least explain what didn't
work, some other Mac user might be able to solve the problem.
