Could you expand on "Apple's Python is kind of icky anyway"? The
python 2.3 that came with MacOS X 10.3 works fine for me (including with
3rd party libraries); did it go downhill on 10.4?
I don't mean to argue, I'm just curious. Python 2.4 has some nifty
enhancements (though if you're going to share your code widely you might
want to wait to use them until 2.4 becomes better established).
