I am very confused about the current state of Python on OS X 10.5.
Looks like Apple ships with 2.5.1 and that is also the latest
installer for OS 10.5. The notes on the wiki page found here:

http://wiki.python.org/moin/MacPython/Leopard

Say:

Mac OS X 10.5.x (Leopard) comes with the 2.5.1 Python distribution pre-
installed, with an integrated Python Launcher.app

[...]

It is recommended that you delete the newly installed Python
Launcher.app, because it is already present inside the system
Python.framework. If you have installed Apple's developer tools (Xcode
et al), it is recommended that you delete the newly installed Build
Applet.app, because it is already present in /Developer/Applications/
Utilities/MacPython 2.5.

okay... for the life of me i do not see any Python Launcher.app and i
just installed OS X 10.5 (running 10.5.6 on intel) .... and i also
installed the dev kit.

Where the heck is this application?

best,
