I'm 99% sure that it does run *natively* in OS X.  The caveat is that 
it's developed using a bunch of CodeWarrior/Carbon specific stuff and 
doesn't look like it's going to make it into machopython anytime soon 
(possibly anytime at all).

Of course, you could always use MacPython for your IDE and Machopython 
to typically run your apps.. but jesus, is vim, emacs, and project 
builder not enough choices for you people?  sheesh :)

Running in Classic mode is nearly as native as running in XDarwin, 
IMHO.  Needless to say, I don't really like running in either..  Well, I 
do run remote stuff w/ XDarwin.
