It's due to the issues there've been in the past. How can someone who
doesn't know Python be sure of whether an issue is due to the mess
that can happen when two Pythons are installed from different places
(the system Python and homebrew, as is often the case), or is actually
an attribute of Python?

Also, I didn't know Yosemite was that close, so I thought it was still
more in flux. So maybe my concerns were a little ... well,
overcautious.

If someone's willing to state with some degree of confidence that
Python X.Y.Z will work perfectly on OS X 10.10, then there's no
problem.
