py2app question: Resources/Python -> Resources/lib/python2.4

I was using an older version of py2app to distribute an application.
This placed the python library code in

I just upgraded to py2app 0.3.5 and now I find the same stuff is being 
put in

This change breaks my code because resource files need to go in the same 
location, though I can certainly modify the code that copies the 
resource files.

My main question is: am I seeing this change because I'm doing something 
wrong (in which case I'd like to fix it)? Or is it just the new way to 
do things (in which case I can modify my resource copying code)?

If it's the new way to do things, is there a recommended way to find 
this directory automatically (or copy directory trees of files into it 
automatically without knowing its name) -- to insulate myself against 
future such changes?
