Hi All.
I'm really new in the python world, so, sorry if my question is particulary
I've just installed on my system (Mac OS X 10.4 PPC) the python version
2.5.2 and all works fine.
My next step is to install the version 3.0 (when available). I've read
somewhere that this version will break the backward compatibility with the
2.x series. I know that several Mac apps (such as Xcode developement
environment) use python for its internal functionalities. Now, my question
is: what will appen to the Mac apps if I install the version 3.0 of python?
Is it safe to install this version without to compromise the behaviour of
the system?

Thanks in advance for any answer and, again, sorry if my question is
particulary stupid, I will learn with time.
